Whilst many people are more familiar with the concept of residential care, where a person will leave their home to live in a residence with others also needing care, home care works quite differently.
A person receiving home care, or domiciliary care, will have a Carer come and visit them in their own home to provide services like; personal care, domestic tasks, medication management, meal preparation, companionship and a whole host of other tasks to support someone to live independently at home. Home care allows those receiving support to remain in familiar surroundings whilst giving family and friends peace of mind for their well-being.
Whilst it can be a difficult process to start home care, talking it through and helping those involved to understand why receiving care is a positive step forward for the person who needs help, or yourself.
At Premier Community, home care services are personalised to your specific needs and preferences to provide care that is right for you.
