Home Care Services

 

Visiting Care

Visiting care, also known as domiciliary care, involves caregivers providing assistance and support to individuals in their own homes on a scheduled basis. Unlike live-in care where the caregiver resides in the client's home, visiting care involves caregivers visiting the client's home for specified hours or sessions as needed.

Visiting care services are tailored to meet the specific needs of each client and can include assistance with activities such as personal care (bathing, dressing, grooming), medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, companionship, and transportation for appointments or outings.

Domiciliary care emphasizes maintaining individuals' independence and quality of life while receiving necessary support to remain safe and comfortable at home. It is a flexible option that can range from short daily visits to longer sessions depending on the client's requirements. Visiting care can be particularly beneficial for those who need assistance with certain tasks but do not require round-the-clock supervision or care.

Live-in Home Care

Live-in home care refers to a type of caregiving service where a caregiver resides in the client's home, providing around-the-clock assistance and support. Unlike visiting caregivers who come for specified hours during the day, live-in caregivers stay with the client for extended periods, typically for several days or weeks at a time.

Live-in home care is suitable for individuals who require continuous support due to aging, disabilities, chronic illnesses, or recovery from surgeries or medical procedures. Caregivers assist with various daily activities such as personal hygiene, medication management, meal preparation, housekeeping, companionship, and mobility assistance.

This type of care allows clients to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes while receiving personalized care and attention tailored to their specific needs. It also provides peace of mind to family members knowing that their loved one has constant support and supervision. Live-in home care can be a beneficial alternative to assisted living facilities or nursing homes for those who prefer to age in place
