Domiciliary Caring aims to provide a caring service at home. Provided by the CommCare Assessment Unit, this community based service is coordinated by the CommCare team and caters for the client’s needs in a personalised and holistic manner, using a case management approach. This is achieved by involving all team members and consulting with other professionals and entities as deemed necessary. Such a service can also be used with other health and social services that are needed in every community. Importantly, each client is assessed by a professional from CommCare so as to ensure that the service is given to those who really need it.
WHAT YOU'LL GET
Once a referral is received, this is vetted by professionals who differentiate between simple home-based caring cases and those that are more complex cases requiring a more intensive effort by the team.
Clients with more complex health needs are visited at home and a thorough assessment is carried out. Once their needs are identified, a care plan is devised in collaboration with the clients, their families and informal carers.
A person receiving care from CommCare is reviewed as necessary. CommCare retains the authority to decline inappropriate referrals and is responsible in deciding on the delivery of service and the frequency of treatment.
