What is Domiciliary Care?

This is Care service is aimed at people who require personal care and some of the practical household tasks that help them to stay at home and be as independent as possible.
Domiciliary care to support people who have different needs for ongoing help, can be short term, or from time-to-time. This is the case where a service user may need regular care, need short-term care after being in hospital, or pehaps have an illness or disability that needs care support occasionally.

While Domiciliary care agencies provide care services to support people in their own homes and do not give specialist nursing care, Match Options is also registered as a Nursing agency and can therefore provide a complete Nursing care.

  • Sitting with or accompanying to appointments/outings
  • Supervision of medication
  • Night care
  • 24-hour support.
