Person centred care services

Home care, also called domiciliary care, is when care staff travel to the homes of people in need of assistance. This is arranged through the local council or through private agencies.

Home care is ideal for people who want to stay living in their own homes but would like some help with day-to-day living. These people can be older, disabled or managing an illness.

Depending on the needs of the individual, the type of care provided ranges from short 30 minute visits to 24 hour live-in. 

In England, it is illegal for new domiciliary care agencies to operate without being registered with the Care Quality Commission.
