Looking for a reliable domiciliary care provider for a parent, spouse, elderly relative, or sick family member? Or for yourself perhaps? There are several important points to keep in mind as you evaluate prospective professionals and the services they offer. We have provided some guidelines to help ensure you or your loved one has quality domiciliary care provider.

Make a list of the services you require or your relative require

Does he/she have specific health care requirements?

Are you looking for rehabilitation care such as after surgery or serious illness?

Determine the type of care that is required before you contact a provider.

Will he/she require assistance with personal care?

Does your relative live alone and require live-in care?

  • Examine the range of services that community care agencies provide

    Read More Don’t assume that all domiciliary care agencies work the same way. Some may not be equipped to provide for complex care needs like Tracheostomy care for instance. Others may only offer specialised services which are geared towards a specific group of people. Also, individual needs change; especially if the person is elderly or has a debilitating illness. In such situations, it makes more sense to work with a community care agency that provides a broad range of services and will be able to meet changing requirements such as hospital discharge and post-operative or live-in care.
  • Review inspection reports

    Read More Determine how long the domiciliary care agency has been in business and examine their track record carefully. Especially examine the inspection reports. You want to ensure that they are in compliance with government regulations and that your loved one will get proper care. These reports can be downloaded from The Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority website, simply search for the Service Provider by name.
  • Ensure the home health care provider is registered with RQIA

    Read More The Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA) monitor and control care providers such as NW Care. An agency that is registered with them demonstrates that their staff has the right training and that the agency meets the required standards.
  • Meet with a few domiciliary care agencies

    Read More This will help you determine which one is the right fit for you. Ask about the training that their staff receives, the screening process for their caregivers and for references that attest to the quality of service. A reputable provider will have no problem giving you this information.

Having a professional home care service for your relative allows them to remain in familiar surroundings while providing them with the support they require. Many people choose this as an alternative to moving into a care home. With the right kind of assistance, they can continue to remain in the comfort of their homes and lead as independent a life as they choose to.

At NW Care, we provide comprehensive home care services of the highest quality. We treat each of our clients with dignity and respect while delivering a personalised care delivery plan. Our aim is to promote their independence and assist quality of life.
