Homecare is also known as domiciliary care, social care or in-home care. It is supportive care provided by a professional care worker in the individual home where the patient or client is living.

In England, all services providing personal care to people in their own homes have been regulated since 1 April 2003. It is illegal for new domiciliary care agencies to operate without being registered with the Care Quality Commission.
