Caring for you in your home is our vocation
In order to receive our Domiciliary Care Service you will need to have your specific needs identified by a social worker, health care professional or one of our trained managers who will complete a care assessment. When your needs have been identified and agreed with you they will be included in your individual centred care plan

Planned to fit around your schedule & requirements.
The domiciliary care plan will also indicate the times that you have requested for your visits by our carers. The carer or support worker will use the care plan as a guide to provide you with the domiciliary care you have been identified as needing during their visit.
Identifying possible hazards and taking steps to resolve them
During this initial visit a risk assessment will also be carried out. This risk assessment will help identify safety issues and risks such as lifting and possible hazards in your home environment. If hazards are identified we will discuss with you the necessary action
required to reduce the risk to you or the carer or support worker to ensure that you are both safe. For example this could include the recommendation to arrange the provision of safety equipment such as hoists to enable safe manual handling.
Our carers are trained to the highest standards
Our carers will provide assistance to our clients in many daily tasks whilst still enabling our clients to remain independent where possible. We provide homecare to many homes in the Birmingham and Solihull region. Our carers can work with the elderly, the mentally or physically disabled or with terminally ill patients.
After a period of four weeks
a senior member of staff will arrange a further meeting with you to review your domiciliary care plan, amend it if necessary and ensure that you are happy with the service you have been receiving. After this your domiciliary care needs will be reviewed on an annual basis or as necessary if there are any changes in your requirements. If you need more time on a particular day or on a permanent basis, then this matter will be raised with your social worker or health care professional who will discuss the matter with you, and if necessary make a request for a re-assessment.
