Villa Anna Teresa’s domiciliary (home) care services are intended to help people who need support and care to live with dignity and independence. Our services are aimed at older persons, and those who need a little extra support to get through activities of daily living. Our aim is to empower our clients to live in their own homes and to retain as much independence as possible – avoiding social isolation. We provide a range of domiciliary services and our care assistants will help with bathing, washing, getting up, and going to bed, shopping, and managing medication. We provide assistance with general domestic tasks including the maintenance of home hygiene and cooking. We also provide guidance services such that the home is adapted to persons with, for example, limited mobility and visual and other impairments. These may include the installation of chair lifts, more accessible bathroom facilities, adjustment of kitchen worktops, handrails, and other aids.
We offer personal care, support and companionship such that our clients can maintain their quality of life.

Villa Anna Teresa tailor-makes services to the client’s needs and takes great care to ensure a suitable client-carer match. To do this an assessment is carried out such that information – including client’ likes and dislikes – is obtained. The client may also be assessed for mobility and other abilities prior to a carer or helper being assigned. While we understand that it is relatives and family members that would generally speak with us about domiciliary care, we always encourage the involvement of loved ones throughout the course of the decision-making process. This will allow for a more tranquil transition.
