Domiciliary Care Explained: What is Domiciliary Care?

In our little guide, we’ll show you all about the magic of domiciliary care – who it helps, why it’s super important to find the perfect care buddy! In the world of care, there are lots of types to choose from, each with their own special words or phrases. Domiciliary care might sound fancy, but it’s not often understood by everyone – let us demystify it for you!

What is Domiciliary Care?

Home care, also called domiciliary care, is when care staff travel to the homes of people in need of assistance. This is arranged through the local council or through private agencies.

Home care is ideal for people who want to stay living in their own homes but would like some help with day-to-day living. These people can be older, disabled or managing an illness.

Home care workers are always properly trained and DBS checked in order to maximise a person’s safety. A DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check is run by the UK Government and used to be called a CRB check. It finds out whether the individual has any criminal convictions. DBS checks come in a few different levels, from a basic check to an enhanced check. The individual will be checked on whether they are banned from working with either children or with vulnerable adults, depending on the nature of the job they are applying for. Home care companies usually require a new, enhanced DBS check to be taken when hiring, to make sure it is up to date.

There are regulatory bodies in place that monitor and assess home care agencies to make sure that their performance is in line with the law and with good professional practice. Each country has its own care regulator. These regulators visit the agencies and conduct in-depth assessments. Their reports and ratings can be found online.

Care coordinators will do their best to match up the person requiring care and care workers based on location, availability and personality. Everyone is visited by a senior member of staff who will discuss their needs and preferences for the care they would like to receive. This is called a care needs assessment.

The staff member will then create a care plan that the care workers will use to deliver the service.

Daily care visits typically last for 30 minutes to an hour and can occur several times a day. Alternatively, you can opt to have visits known as ‘sits’ or ‘sitting’. These are longer visits that last several hours at a time. These ‘sits’ allow the care worker to assist with daily tasks, housework, prepare meals and take the person out for day trips, shopping or to local amenities and amusements.

All staff are also trained to administer medication. Those who have ‘sits’ will generally be cared for by a rotation of two to three care workers who know them and their care plan inside out. This means that a deeper bond of friendship can be built, and care workers will find it easier to personalise daily activities.

If you are interested in receiving home care or arranging it for a loved one, you’ll first need to identify what sort of care you require. There are different types of home care, depending on the needs of the person needing care

What does Domiciliary Care mean?

It can mean different things for different people because domiciliary care can be tailored to support an individual’s needs. This is the main factor in why it is so popular in the UK. Visits can vary in frequency with tasks included, but not limited to;

  • Household tasks such as cleaning, laundry and cooking
  • Assisting with accessing the local community, taking them to the shops, or to help attend appointments
  • Personal medical support, this can include anything from applying dressings to supporting the health and wellbeing of a person with disabilities

Domiciliary care can be as frequent as required.

Who is Domiciliary Care for?

It’s ultimately for anyone who wishes to remain at home but requires additional support or care needs in order to live an independent, healthy and fulfilling life. It’s often a preferred option for elderly people who don’t wish to be in a care home but need additional, regular support.Some domiciliary care agencies specialise in specific areas or services. This can therefore be bespoke to the person’s specific care needs.
