NICE Guideline

Delivering Personal Care and Practical Support to Older People living in their own homes.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published a new guideline, titled Delivering Personal Care and Practical Support to Older People living in their own homes.

Almost half a million people received home care in England in 2013/14, with 80 per cent of them at least 65 years old. Demand for home care is expected to grow in the coming years due to England’s ageing population.  It is predicted that almost 1 in 4 people in England will be aged 65 and older by 2035.

This guideline covers the planning and delivery of person-centred care for older people living in their own homes (known as home care or domiciliary care). It aims to promote older people's independence and to ensure safe and consistently high quality home care services, and recommends that services support the aspirations, goals and priorities of each person, and that they and their carers are treated with empathy, courtesy and respect.

Training courses we offer specific to Homecare include:

  • Assessing needs in line with Positive Risk Taking for Domiciliary and Homecare Staff Teams

For large organisations wanting to roll a programme out across the whole staff team, you may want to consider setting up a pilot programme prior to full implementation. We have worked with many customers on pilot projects to ensure programmes meet all required objectives and any change are made from lessons learned prior to full implementation.

The Care Act 2014, together with a range of regulations and statutory guidance, is the base upon which social care will develop over the next few decades. It enshrines the new statutory principle of individual wellbeing, the driving force behind the Act, and makes it the responsibility of local authorities to promote wellbeing when carrying out any of their care and support functions.
