Domiciliary Care - UK - September 2015
“People in need of care services tend to prefer to receive help in their own homes to maintain a sense of independence and reduce disruption to daily activities, such as visits from friends or family, which may not be as achievable in a different care setting. With the UK’s ageing population trend expected to continue indefinitely, care providers have increasing opportunities to seek out the ever-increasing number of users, with a rising number not able to access state-funded care, and provide them with a suitable home care service. The more widespread uptake of companies and employees contributing to pension funds is expected to see the next generation of older people have assets that surpass the means-tested threshold for access to state-funded social care. This means that more people will ‘self-fund’ the care services they need - providing another potential avenue for care providers to explore. The actual development of the domiciliary care industry will be determined by whether it can adapt and provide suitable services for all prospective care users with different levels of needs, particularly the ever-increasing number of elderly people.”
