Domiciliary Care & Personal Care
Domiciliary Care is the care of someone in their own home. Illness, impairment or age can make it difficult to carry out all of the personal care tasks that you perhaps once handled around the home with ease. Our trained and qualified care and support workers have assisted many individuals with their personal care needs. You will find that they are understanding and sympathetic, without being patronising. They will respect your dignity at all times.
The carer’s objective is to enable you to retain and maintain as much independence as possible. Our care and support workers know that every client is an individual, with unique personal needs, preferences and values, so they will not intrude into your personal life. All support arrangements will be completely personalised to your requirements, involving your family members if you wish, and we will only provide the services that you have asked for in your care and support plan. Whether you need a lot of assistance every day or just small amounts from time to time, Caremark’s domiciliary care plans can assist you with a wide variety of personal care tasks.
