Domiciliary care describes a range of care and support that help people live well and maintain their independence in their own home. Types of care might include:
- Personal care, including oral health
- Food preparation
- Administering medication
- Light domestic duties ie washing dishes, emptying bins, changing bedding
Arranging domiciliary care starts with getting an assessment of your care and support needs. The assessment is done free of charge by a Halton Borough Council Adult Social Care worker and can be undertaken at your home or other convenient place. Anyone can request an assessment, regardless of income or savings.
