Domiciliary Care Services
Domiciliary Care Services are committed to working alongside service user’s and their carers/representatives to promote health and well-being in a safe and comfortable home environment; to offer support which reflects assessed need and re-builds self-esteem; to sustain and encourage maintenance of life skills and to encourage involvement with community based activities which reflect the service user’s interests.
Domiciliary Care Services provide home based support for older people or those with disabilities who wish to remain living in their own homes for as long as they are able to do so.
Care Workers will call to support service users with those aspects of daily living for which an assessment indicates that assistance would be helpful.
Typically, assistance is offered with personal care tasks such as personal hygiene, and dressing as well as with heating meals, prompting medication and checking security.
There is currently no charge to the service receiver and there are regular opportunities to have assessed needs reviewed to ensure that changing needs are being catered for in the most effective and efficient way possible.
People accessing this service are usually over 65 or have a disability & live in the South Eastern Trust Area.
Referrals to this service can only be made by a health care professional.
The health care professional will arrange for a multi-disciplinary assessment to be carried out. This will include assessments from your GP, a social worker, nurse, physiotherapist and occupational therapist. Following this, agreement will be reached as to the level of services provided, considering other services which may be available.
