Having a carer visit you at home can make a huge difference to your life, especially if it means with that little extra help you can remain living independently in your own home.
Our care team in Danbury are on hand to provide flexible care when you need it most. From one visit a day to several visits, short-term to long-term contracts, we can help you arrange the support you need on an ongoing basis. Some people we visit like a little help in the shower to get ready in the mornings, whilst others prefer a daytime check-in to help with the housework or to offer some companionship.
Whatever support you or a loved one require; Fambridge Care are here to help every step of the way.
Visiting Care Services to Help Make A Difference
Visiting care provides the support you want at the times when you need it, so that you can continue living in the comfort of your own home. Whether you would like some assistance taking your medication, help around the house to complete domestic tasks or need over-night support, our friendly carers are on hand to provide help and support where it’s needed the most.
How Is Visiting Care Different to Residential Care?
Unlike residential care, visiting care is carried out in your home to your own requirements. Visiting care in your home will allow you to have the support you need without the disruption of having to move into a nursing or care home.
With visiting care, our carers will provide just the right level of support that you require. If there are certain aspects of care that you would prefer to do yourself, like showering or personal care, our carers will respect your choice and always take into account your preferences. Our visiting care Danbury services can be completely adapted to fit your needs and requirements, whatever they may be.
With one-to-one support from a trained Fambridge carer, you can relax in the knowledge that we aim to provide you with the highest level of care at all times.
Who Can Benefit from Visiting Care?
If you require a little extra help and care around the home to carry on living an independent life, then you could certainly benefit from visiting care. Our visiting carers will be there to help you with anything that you need. Our highly trained carers can also provide support for those with advanced care needs.
Our visiting care service in Danbury can be as flexible as you wish – we can provide anything from a 30-minute visit once a week to a carer that stays overnight as and when you require them. We’re here to enable you to remain living at home for as long as is practically possible.

The frequency and duration of our visits will be agreed with you during the assessment process. Once a care plan is in place, the care management team will regularly monitor the standard of care provided. Our quality assurance processes include an initial review 4-weeks from inception followed by more formal reviews at least every 3 months or when required. We invest a lot of time into our carers, helping to provide them with high quality care training, supervising, development and support.
There are a variety of different options to fund your care, including direct payments, an individual budget or personal funds. Regardless of your choice of funding, everyone is welcome to the service and treated as an equal.

What is visiting care?
Visiting care, sometimes referred to as domiciliary care, is for people who require some help and support to help them live independently at home.
When should you consider help at home?
You may want to consider receiving help from a visiting carer if:
- You are finding it more difficult to cope with daily routines, such as washing, dressing and getting out and about
- You wish to retain your independence by living at home and not moving into a care home
What do home carers do?
Home carers can do as little or as much as you need them to! They can help with all personal, general and specialist care services, such as housekeeping, preparing meals, helping people to bathe and dress and provide companionship.
