Home care (also called domiciliary care) is tailor-made support for the elderly or those with additional needs. It is delivered in your own home by registered professionals.
This type of care is very flexible, you might need a carer for only an hour a week, or for several hours a day. It can include personal assistance, such as help with bathing, washing your hair, or getting dressed. It may also include domestic tasks or medication assistance.
Home-based assistance can be an ideal solution for the elderly, those with a disability or long-term illness, or even people recovering from surgery.
