Domiciliary Care in your Own Home is often a much better alternative to residential care for those needing assistance.
There are many advantages to staying in your own home and receiving excellent care. You remain in familiar surroundings, you are amongst local friends, neighbours and family. So where possible, remaining at home is the right solution.
A carer visits you in your own home (your present home or an extra care apartment if you choose to move to one) and helps you with any daily activities you cannot safely manage on your own (getting dressed; cleaning around the house; going to the toilet). Our support workers can also accompany you on visits and social events out in the community, so no need to miss that important lunch date or cinema trip.
How often they visit and for how long each visit lasts, depends upon how many one-to-one care minutes/hours you require. Working out just what is needed is carried out by care professionals and this is something we at My Care My Home can arrange for you.
