Home care and community based roles

Home care professionals (often called 'domiciliary' or 'community care' professionals) provide care and support in people's own homes. People using home care services may have long-term health conditions, age-related illnesses or mobility issues, physical and/ or learning disabilities or mental health problems. Home care professionals are trained to provide care and support that is tailored to the needs of each individual.
