Our Home Care Service

Home care, also known as domiciliary care, is the provision of personal care and supplementary services to individuals in their own homes. The word 'domiciliary' is taken from the Latin word 'domus' meaning home. The care delivered can range from a 15 minute check to ensure that the individual has taken prescribed medication, for example, through to 24 hour, live-in care. 

 

Health Care

SOS Homecare currently deliver this service on behalf of local authorities, the NHS and individuals who wish to pay privately or through their personal budgets for the service. We have been supplying services commissioned by Trafford council for the eighteen years and we are contracted to supply services to them for at least another two years.
