Domiciliary care, which is sometimes called “home care,” is given to people who live on their own but need help with daily tasks.
A professional carer will visit your home to assist you with activities of daily living such as light housekeeping, personal care, food preparation and cooking, and any other task that will allow you to maintain your independence and quality of life. Additionally, home care allows a loved one’s family caregiver to take a much-needed respite.
To describe domiciliary care services, providers of domiciliary care will employ a number of terms. Domiciliary care includes hourly care, home care, and visiting care, which all refer to the same service: a caregiver visiting your home throughout the day to provide care and support.
SamTeck Care Solutions may arrange for a carer to visit you once, twice, three times, or more each day for 15 minutes to an hour, depending on your care and support needs.
Who Is Provided with Domiciliary Care?
Domiciliary care is for individuals who want to get healthcare treatment at home. This type of care can assist individuals of all ages. This treatment may also involve recuperation, convalescence, and rehabilitation.
Our fully certified caregivers can provide medical support such as catheterisation, continence, PEG feeding, and suppositories, among others. Our caring staff is supervised by a team of clinical care nurses who will work with you to design a personalised care plan, simplifying your life while you get care in the comfort of your own home.
Also, when needed, we work closely with district nurses and occupational therapists to make sure that the care we give meets your specific needs, whether you need care for a disability, care for people with dementia, nursing care, or care from a friend or companion.
How Does Domiciliary Care Work?
Our SamTeck Care Solutions team will provide you with a personalised care package tailored to your exact needs, as well as your own dedicated carer. They will help you achieve your specific needs and preferences, as well as provide support throughout your plan.
Each plan is adaptable and individualised, and all current habits are taken into account, whether you have a nighttime care routine, a medication schedule, or a key hobby.
If for any reason your or your loved one’s needs change, the carer will continue to be accessible to assist you and will be as flexible as possible while providing care. SamTeck Care Solutions places your requirements above anything else.
Costs for Domiciliary Care
Frequently, the cost of care for those who choose live-in home care is cheaper than the total cost of domiciliary care at home. When a person receives domiciliary care from a domiciliary care provider, you will likely be charged extra for additional services to support the person’s special care requirements, such as dementia, Parkinson’s, or someone with high or complicated needs, in addition to the cost of a caregiver visiting. These extras may become costly over time as they accumulate.
A domiciliary care provider will continue to charge by the hour, which can rapidly become prohibitively expensive as a person’s needs increase and a greater number of hours per day are required to provide the necessary care.
The total hourly cost of providing domiciliary care to an individual requiring 24-hour care and support will almost certainly exceed the cost of an all-inclusive live-in care service.
