What is domiciliary care?
Home care, also known as domiciliary care is the support and help with personal care and household tasks for the frail or those with long-term care needs.
Domiciliary care makes it possible for users to remain in their own home rather than use residential nursing care homes, enabling them to maintain comfort and personal independence within their local community.
