Home care, sometimes called domiciliary care, can help you to remain living independently and safely in your own home. There are many different types of support available, depending on your individual needs.
You may require home care for different reasons, such as: having a disability; general frailty due to old age; following a hospital stay or a fall; or simply to help you regain confidence in living independently. No matter what the reason, there are services available to help and support you.
