What is domiciliary care?

Domiciliary care refers to the support offered to elderly individuals with a range of services, including household chores, making meals, running errands, personal care and administration. 

Domiciliary care services, also known as in-home care or live-in care, is a package of tailored care delivered to an individual within their own home. At Bright Care, our domiciliary care services are available 24/7, 365 days of the year. 

Our daytime care visits are for two hours or more, allowing meaningful relationships to form between a Care Assistant and their clients. This results in the delivery of high-quality care and consistent companionship. Our live-in care is delivered by a small consistent team of careers who can build trust and develop strong bonds with their clients.

What is a domiciliary care agency?

A domiciliary care agency often uses ad-hoc Care Assistants to create a package of at-home care. This means that when using an agency, your loved ones will probably not get the same Carer each time, making it difficult to develop meaningful relationships and build trust. 

Although this method of providing domiciliary care services may be cheaper than the fully managed care services offered by Bright Care, it is doubtful that you will receive the same level of service that our team offers.
