Home care, also known as domiciliary care is becoming an increasingly popular option for families. This is when a carer will visit your loved one, therefore allowing them to stay in the familiar surroundings of their own home for longer.
If your loved one are struggling with daily tasks such as washing, taking medications or meal preparation or if your loved one is feeling isolated, care at home might be an option to consider.

Need help finding home care?
Our advisers are available to speak and meet during evenings and weekends and can liaise directly with patients and their family members. We assess and shortlist care options that best meet the patients’ clinical needs and personal preferences. We also advise on fees, government financial thresholds and social services. We carefully compile information from care homes and care providers including for example location, facilities available, capabilities, pricing etc which may be helpful in choosing a provider. We make this information available free of charge on request. When a care home or provider is chosen from this information and a successful placement is then made, we may receive payment from the care home or care provider.
