At Xtra Healthcare, we provide complex care in the home across the UK to support adults and children with conditions including:
Our complex care services are tailored to the client’s specific needs, wishes and lifestyle choices. In developing care packages, we explore with the client, their family and commissioners issues including:
By combining this information with a full clinical assessment of client needs and risk assessments, we can create a complete picture of the client that enables us to select appropriately trained, qualified, and experienced staff to deliver a holistic care package designed to support maximum independence and quality of life.
Our trained, qualified and experienced carers are supervised by a specialist nurse with a critical care background, who will liaise with the client, their family and other stakeholders – such as a GP, the local primary care trust or hospital – to ensure that all the necessary elements, from equipment to a hospital discharge plan, are in place before the package commences.
What does domiciliary care mean?
Quite simply, when a carer or personal assistant offers visiting support at home. Different to live-in care where you receive ongoing support, this type of care is for those who prefer support at set regular times each week. This could be as little as a weekly housekeeping visit through to several visits a day to help with personal care, getting around the home or preparing meals, for example.
It even covers overnight support if you need some extra assistance with nightly toilet trips or taking medication. You can arrange what is called a ‘sitting service’ for the whole of the night so if there is ever a problem, someone is on hand to help.
Who is domiciliary care for?
Those who wish to stay within their own homes may be very interested in the idea of regular visits from a qualified carer. It may be that they need a little extra support after having an operation or have a long-term condition such as dementia, Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis.
Domiciliary care, in short, is for anyone who wants to remain independent within the comfort of their own home rather than move into residential care, but may need some extra help in order for that to happen.
As a regulated care provider with years of experience of supporting people in their own homes, our carers can help in all kinds of ways, with their priority being the comfort and wellbeing of the person in their care.
We’re one of the UK’s most experienced providers of residential care for adults with learning disabilities, mental health needs and associated complex needs.

We also provide specialist residential based therapy and care for individuals with Personality Disorders along with enhanced supported living services.
