What Do Domiciliary Care Workers Do?

Staying at home is important to many people. Arranging care at home can help you avoid moving into a residential care home, which can be a very costly and distressing experience. Domiciliary care is when a professional carer makes frequent visits to you in your home. But what do domiciliary care workers do? At Abing Homecare, we want to provide outstanding care with the utmost dignity, and we know that domiciliary care can go a long way towards helping you to live your life without disruption.

After your Needs Assessment, we will match you with a professional carer who can provide support with everyday tasks in your own home. Your domiciliary care worker will be able to visit you as often as you need them.

What can your domiciliary carer do for you?

At Abing Homecare, we can create a bespoke care plan based on your specific needs. Next, let’s take a look at some of the tasks your domiciliary care worker will be able to do in your home.

Personal Care

Sometimes caring for yourself can become a challenge. It is important that you live life to the fullest and sometimes a little help can go a long way. It can feel difficult to look after your own wellbeing on a day-to-day basis. A homecare worker can help you with tasks like dressing, bathing, and continence care. You can build your homecare plan around your individual needs to ensure you get the right support.

Administering Medication

Medication can be important to function as well as possible. This is a priority when it comes to your or your loved one’s health. Having a friendly face able to help you with this can be reassuring when it comes to this task. Many people take several different medications at different times throughout the day. A domiciliary care worker can schedule their visits around your medication schedule to ensure that you never miss a dose.

Preparing Meals

Some parts of everyday life can feel like a chore, however, eating well-balanced, home-cooked meals is an important part of normality. Eating well is so important for physical health, mental health, and general wellbeing. If you struggle to prepare and eat your favourite meals independently, you could benefit from domiciliary care.

Helping with Household Tasks

Everyone deserves a safe and clean living space. We know that it is easy to let chores get away from you when you have health issues or problems with mobility. . Domiciliary care workers will help you complete these tasks and keep your home running.

Companionship

The coronavirus pandemic has been a particularly lonely time for many elderly and disabled people in particular. No one wants to feel alone and at Abing Homecare, we will work closely with you and your family to match you with a carer you’ll get on with. Domiciliary care workers can support you with more than just your practical care needs; they can help to meet your emotional needs too.
