Where it is important to stay at home in your own, familiar surroundings nearer to friends and family, home care might offer the best value. This has the advantage of maintaining independence but that can mean you need a little extra help. Domiciliary care ( homecare) can often be the perfect solution to getting a little help whilst retaining a good level of personal freedom.
How Domiciliary Care can help you
The level of home care provided can be tailored to meet your needs – from a visit once a day to a regular, or long term visits . Home care agencies can help with personal care such as washing , medication administration and dressing.
Some agencies will provide ‘live-in’ care, where a care worker will stay with you at home to support you throughout the day and night.
This service offers long term respite or day support for people either within the Shared Lives Carer’s own family home or in the service user’s home. The person can either live with the family permanently, or go to stay with them for overnight short breaks, or for a few hours per week. The Shared Lives Scheme is usually available to any vulnerable adult over 18, who meets their local council’s eligibility criteria.
If you would like to live in a Shared Lives home and be cared for by a Shared Lives carer, or to become a Shared Lives carer, then you (or a family member, relative, friend, neighbour or any other adult) should contact your local council or adult social care provider.
Why choose Domiciliary Care?
The reasons for choosing homecare can varies . Some people need some help to recover after hospital stay . Other might need this help due to a long term condition or disability. The need for home care varies. After a stay in hospital someone may carry out an assessment of your situation to see if home care will benefit you. You and your family will be fully involved in looking at what will suit you best. Alternatively, you or those close to you might notice some changes in your ability to manage the day-to-day tasks like preparing meals or looking after yourself. If this happens, you can contact a home care agency to discuss your specific requirements. Alternatively, you can contact Adult Social Care.
Councils have a duty to carry out a care needs assessment for anyone who might need help, which is very useful in helping you make care and support decisions. If you think you need help please contact your local council. Alternatively if you are able to finance is yourself you can contact a domiciliary care agency to arrange it.

If one requires care around the clock but would like to remain in their own home, 24-hour live-in care may be a suitable support system for them. For personal reasons some people prefer to live in their own home rather than move into a care or nursing home. However, this will need to be balanced against their needs as live in home care can result in loneliness.
Live-in care can be a useful service for short-term respite to carers who may need a break. Live-in care is useful when an urgent need for care is required by families . Hospital discharge relies on having the right care and support in place in one’s home. In this regard, a live-in carer would help with recuperation and rehabilitation whilst working alongside professionals in the community.
