Domiciliary care

At the Guild, we supply healthcare assistants and nurses where relevant to provide domiciliary care, also known as private home care, to help people in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to live independently in their own homes.

As a domiciliary care and home nursing provider, our trained nurses and healthcare assistants are experienced in delivering home-based care for individual instances or as an ongoing service. We are readily available for short-term assistance, catering to individuals with needs ranging from 4 hours of care to 24/7, including the provision of emergency domiciliary care.

What is domiciliary care?

Domiciliary care covers a wide range of services that help people live independently and stay in control of their lives. The aim is to help individuals maintain their independence and quality of life within their familiar surroundings. In addition to supporting private clients, we work with public sector representatives, including local authorities and case managers.

Our domiciliary care services

Our domiciliary care team can assist with everything including providing personal care within the home, supporting with everyday activities and helping individuals to access the community while promoting independence and wellbeing. This includes: 

  • Personal care, including assisting with bathing, personal hygiene, dressing, toileting and continence care.
  • Mobility assistance
  • Medication assistance
  • Meal preparation
  • Enabling access to the community
  • Communication and companionship
  • Day and night provision

Who can we support?

We work with private clients, local authorities, and case managers, providing support for individuals living at home. If your usual provider can’t assist, we’re here to help at short notice for as long as you require.

The benefits of domiciliary care with the Guild

Domiciliary care with the Guild offers people the right support to safely remain at home rather than move into hospital or a care facility, helping them to retain their independence in familiar surroundings without disrupting their routine. It brings peace of mind to families concerned about a person’s wellbeing, nutrition, and risk of falls.


Our highly trained workers offer bespoke, personalised support for both adults and children. They offer physical, emotional, and practical support for a wide range of situations. Whether support is needed with washing, dressing, cooking, shopping, or respite care, we’re here whenever – and wherever – you need us.

Our ability to step in at short notice, without the commitment of regular bookings, means you can plan care when you need it most. And our workers are recruited to standards that exceed local regulations and guidelines.

What is the cost of domiciliary care?

The cost of domiciliary care depends on your individual needs and we’ll discuss your requirements and design a care package that fits. Our team is on hand to talk you through what’s involved to precisely find the level of care you require and we will always be transparent about our costs.

We can also support individuals looking for private care at home with a range of conditions and disabilities such as:

  • Complex Care conditions
  • Acquired brain injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Complex orthopaedic injuries and amputation
  • Palliative care or end of life care
  • Learning disabilities
  • Mental health support
  • Rehabilitation following an accident
  • Supporting people returning home from hospital

Domiciliary care case study
