Domiciliary Care

What is Domiciliary Care (Dom Care)?

This type of program is appropriate for consumers age 18 and older, who are unable to live independently and who need some assistance with activities of daily living. Domiciliary care home programs are regulated by each state. In general, these homes are smaller than traditional personal care homes and often the Dom Care home is the individual provider’s home. They are certified annually to ensure regulations are met.


Domiciliary Care housing is for adults 18 years of age and older who cannot live independently at the current time. Dom Care consumers must be found clinically eligible for the program, which means they have some difficulty performing activities of daily living. Consumers include individuals who have a physical disability, a mental health or developmental disability, or are frail. Dom Care consumers must be SSI eligible or have enough income to pay the monthly rate required.
