Olive Tree Domiciliary Services

Most people live independently in their own homes. However, if you are frail or have long term careneeds, this can be difficult without the help and support of other people and services. Help with personal care and other practical household tasks is called Domiciliary Care.

  • We  offer a much needed domiciliary service to Blackburn and the surrounding areas. We offer person centred support aimed at promoting independence and achieving outcomes.
  • We are a skilled team, many of whom have supported children, young people and adults with learning disabilities, autism and associated conditions for many years.
  • We work in local communities to provide services which maximises the independence of the individuals who access them. We promote connecting people to their local community in a meaningful way so they are a valued member of the community.
