What is homecare?

This can mean either domiciliary care or outreach care. Both are provided in your own home and reflect the level of support you might need.

Outreach care focuses on companionship and emotional support, as well as helping those with physical and learning difficulties to live social, independent lives in and out of the home. 

Whatever your needs, C4’s homecare services offer personalised, relationship-based care that respects people’s privacy and dignity while encouraging a fun routine.

What is domiciliary care? Domiciliary care is a group of services put in place to support people living in their own homes when they require more care. It commonly includes personal care and medication, physical and mental support with daily routines, household tasks and meal preparation, and may include more specialist clinical care where needed.
Why is domiciliary care important? Domiciliary care is important for maintaining people’s independence as their care needs change. It allows people to stay in their community and around their home comforts and belongings. Homecare services mean you can choose how and when you do your daily routine, whether bathing, eating, sleeping, or going out.
What is supported living? Supported living services are designed to support independent living, whatever the amount of support an individual may need.

How do I arrange home care? It may be your local council (social services) who arranges this, or a referral via healthcare professionals. If you are arranging home care yourself, you should still contact social services as they can help assess the right type of care for your needs.

The C4 Care team are happy to discuss any domiciliary care arrangements you require and help you decide the amount of care you need.
