Domiciliary care is for anyone who wants to stay at home while receiving the care they need and can be beneficial to people of all ages. This can include anything from daily personal care to companionship visits into the wider community.
Our trained carers are able to provide some medical support including catheterisation, convene, PEG feeding etc. We also work closely alongside District Nurses and Occupational Therapists when required to ensure that we are able to deliver care that meet our customers needs. However we do offer other lighter duties, such as a pop in welfare check as well as domestic chores. We aim to find out what your loved ones personal needs and wishes are. Our Service Users are at the heart of everything we do and we are there to support them to achieve whatever it is they require.
What is the right care for you and your loved one?
For some families, care homes provide everything that’s required and are seen as a safe environment for their loved ones where they can have constant access to the support that they need. However, the comfort and familiarity of being at home is often overlooked as an option. This is where the benefits of domiciliary care can be seen.

Case study of previous Customer –
Mrs N is in her 80s and has lived alone at her home in Gloucester since her husband passed away, with a very supportive family close by. Some time ago she had a fall and was admitted to hospital, after which she transferred to a care home. However, Mrs N soon realised living in a care home was not for her and decided to return to her own home and continues to live there with the support of Broomfield Care.
The Broomfield Care team have been looking after Mrs N for nearly two years. In the beginning her family were worried about whether she would accept and adapt to having carers in her home. The care team have provided a friendly and caring approach with Mrs N, built up good relationships and encouraged her to become as independent as possible in her own environment.
Regular visits are much enjoyed by Mrs N who is always pleased to see staff, friends and family. Mrs N is much happier in herself again and feels contented again in her own home.
Mrs L, Mrs N’s daughter, comments “The family appreciates the close cooperation of the carers and their proactive approach. I’m sure I speak for my brother and my sister when I say that we feel very supported by the Broomfield team.”
