Domiciliary care

We believe that the Chelsea Pensioners have the right to live lives that are purposeful, and which enables them to maintain their independence.

Our high quality domiciliary service is individualised, Pensioner centred and delivered by our team of, friendly, fully trained and experienced domiciliary care staff.

Following assessment we deliver this care into the long ward berths to support those Pensioners who require assistance with :-

  • Personal Care
  • Domestic tasks
  • Shopping
  • Meal service in acute situations
  • Medication assistance
  • Escorted medical appointments if their next of kin is unavailable.

Pensioners have telephone access with the domiciliary team if they need to discuss their planned care or change their appointment time.

We are fully registered in England with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Please follow link to the CQC latest report on our service

“It’s a lovely day tomorrow”

The pandemic has meant it’s been a very difficult year for us all. The Chelsea Pensioners are no exception and have missed getting out and about. Nevertheless, they’ve put a brave face on it and, as one Chelsea Pensioner puts it, “the banter continues”.
