Types of Domiciliary Care

Our domiciliary care enables you to live the life you know and love, surrounded by friends and family. With our domiciliary care in London, you or your loved one will continue living independently at home whilst receiving expert care.


Visiting homecare offers the care you want, when you need it. It is an alternative to moving into a care home. From as little as one hour a week our carers can help with variety of tasks such as cooking, cleaning, medication and social visits. It is common to have care visits around meal times, for example a breakfast visit, lunch visit and dinner visit.


One-to-one nightly care from one of our fully trained carers means someone is there to assist with toilet breaks, administering medication or moving position in bed. Around 1 in 3 adults over 65 who live at home will have at least one fall a year, and about half of these will have more frequent falls. This commonly happens at night when people are disorientated.


Knowing that there is someone in the home to assist with domiciliary care at all times, gives the peace of mind that you or your loved one is not alone. A carer will stay in the property in the day and night and will help with personal hygiene, visits to medical appointments, cooking, cleaning and other household chores.


Our Domiciliary Care Plans

To make sure we keep providing the best domiciliary care plans for our clients, we perform an initial assessment so we understand the unique needs of each individual. Our plan includes:


Everyday tasks can get harder with different conditions, whether it be a minor injury or more long-term conditions. Rivendell provides personal care in your home and at your convenience, and can help with continence management, administering medication and rehabilitation and enablement programmes provided by a health and social care professional.


We recognise that having a clean and tidy home is very important to all of our clients and their families. Our team provides support with dusting and vacuuming, cleaning the property, changing the bed linen and towels, laundry and ironing, cleaning floors and other housekeeping duties. We are also available to support correspondence and help with shopping.


It can feel very isolating being at home on your own for long periods of time. Our carers are employed by us because they love what they do and it is their aim to add a little sparkle to the day of our care users. They can be available to support contact with family and friends; engage in a hobby in or away from the home or join in with community activities.  We can help support scheduled appointments e.g. doctor, hospital, district nurse, plumber, gasman, cinema, theatre, social visits and more.


For the body to work properly, it is essential to have a balanced and nutritious diet. We understand that sometimes it can be hard to know what to eat, this is why we can work alongside a diet plan created by a doctor or dietician ensuring we serve meals that are both tasty and nutritious. Along with sticking to a meal plan, our carers can attend your weekly shop with you to help implement this plan into your everyday diet.

What is Domiciliary Care?

Domiciliary Care involves an experienced, qualified and vetted carer looking after someone from the comfort of their own home. This can be flexible from 2/3 visits a week right through to 24-hour care.

What Does Domiciliary Care Involve?

Our fully trained, accredited and experienced carers can provide help and support with personal care, housekeeping, companionship and dietary care. Our friendly and experienced carers always aim to provide a top quality level of care that you are happy and comfortable with.

What is the Difference Between Residential Care and Domiciliary Care?

Domiciliary care allows you to stay at home in familiar surroundings and receive expert and professional care surrounded by loved ones, allowing for as much independence as possible. Residential care involves moving into an unfamiliar environment and eating meals and going to sleep at set times, visiting is normally restricted and care isn’t frequently one-to-one.
