Quality care in your own home, with YPEP
Domiciliary care is the range of services put in place to support an individual in their own home, and is available to those that require additional support with day to day household tasks, personal care or any other activity that allows them to maintain their quality of life and independent living.
At YPEP, we provide ongoing support that’s completely built around your needs and routines. It’s one of the many reasons why we’re the nation’s favourite for home care.
What you should know;
With domiciliary care , you or your loved one can continue to stay in the place you feel most comfortable – at home. You may be starting to find it difficult to complete different areas of your routine and want some support whilst staying in familiar surroundings. Regular home visits from a fully trained care worker, from 30 minutes through to several hours a day, can be arranged to help you with a wide range of everyday tasks, including:
- Personal and continence care
- Managing medication
- Helping to mobilise in and around the home
- Household tasks and meal preparation
Like live-in care, domiciliary care offers a valuable source of companionship. Seeing a familiar face every day, or a couple of times a week, brings comfort, a feeling of safety and friendship – as with elderly care, this form of social care also benefits mental health, as a care worker will be able to provide the much needed companionship. Care assistants are not just trained in delivering the physical aspects of care, but also offering emotional support, encouragement and reassurance.
You will receive your own bespoke care package tailored to your unique needs, and you will have your own private carer from our YPEP team. They will help you achieve yours or your loved one’s personal needs and wishes, while supporting you through your plan.
If, for whatever reason, you or your loved one’s needs change, the carer will still be there to help, and will be as flexible as possible when delivering your care. At YPEP, we put your needs above everything else.
The price of our domiciliary care services is very dependent upon your individual care needs, so please speak to us to get a full breakdown.
The biggest advantage of domiciliary care is that it allows your or your loved one to retain their independence in the home they know and love.
Domiciliary care services are provided in an individual’s own home, whereas residential care involves the person moving permanently into a specialist supervised establishment set up solely to provide care.
Your local authority might be able to pay some or all the costs associated with domiciliary care. However, you may have to pay for all the services yourself. Make sure you claim all the benefits you’re entitled to – Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance (or Personal Independence Payment) are among the most common
