Domiciliary care is the delivery of a range of personal care and support services to clients in their own home.  The care delivered can range from a 1- hour service to 24 hour live- in care

This care may be funded by the state or the client receiving the service. In the event that the package is state funded, RMS may receive the payments from the organisation funding the client, or the client may receive direct payments enabling them to fund the care themselves.

To ensure that the package is right, a care plan is drawn up with the client and any health and social care professionals; clearly stating what support is needed and how and when it will be delivered. This plan is reviewed after a week, and then less frequently to ensure it is ideal.
