What is a Domiciliary Care Worker?

Domiciliary care workers care for those who need it most; making a home, a home. A domiciliary care worker, also known as a home care worker, is a healthcare professional who provides care and support to individuals living in their own homes, rather than in a hospital or care facility. Their role is to assist with daily tasks such as bathing, dressing, and preparing meals, as well as providing companionship and emotional support. They also assist with medication management and may provide specialized care for individuals with chronic conditions or disabilities.
