When making the decision to choose home care for either yourself or a loved one, a deciding factor may be the tasks that the carer could complete for you. We understand that asking for help is a big step and we want to make sure that you have chosen the right type of care to suit your needs. We have explained the different tasks our home carers (also known as domiciliary carers) can offer below.
Needing help with personal care can be daunting for anyone. Our fully trained carers are experienced and complete their tasks with sensitivity and the highest level of care and respect for all of our clients. We know how important it is that those we care for maintain their dignity and retain as much independence as possible.

One of the main reasons for choosing home care over residential care is often to do with how much those we care for love being in their own homes. Home means safety, comfort and familiarity. Taking pride in your home goes hand in hand with that. Daily jobs may seem like little things but they can build up. Keeping our client’s homes at the standard they desire is very important to us. We want the people we care for to remain as happy in their own homes as they have always been, without the worry of the little jobs not being done.

The primary reason that a person might require domiciliary home care is that they cannot care for themselves in the way they want to be able to. For many people, this means needing a little extra physical support but emotional support can be equally valuable. Many of our clients have come to rely on the companionship of our carers. We help combat loneliness and we understand how important a friendly face and a good chat can be.
It’s not just those in our care that benefit from emotional support. Having a loved one who requires home care can put a lot of pressure on families. A domiciliary carer can relieve some of the pressure on families and make visiting their loved one more enjoyable; safe in the knowledge that their care is being provided for.
There are many ways we provide emotional support:
