The Domiciliary Care or "Dom Care" Program is a residential program that provides a home-like living arrangement in the community for adults age 18 and older who are unable to live alone because of difficulties with daily living skills, in social or personal adjustment, or because of disabilities. Dom Care providers open up their homes to individuals who need a supervised living arrangement in a home-like environment. Dom Care residents are matched to homes that best meet their needs, preferences and interests. Dom Care homes are certified for no more than three Dom Care residents. Unlike larger personal care homes, Dom Care homes are the individual provider's home. They are inspected annually to ensure they meet health and safety standards.
Contact the COSA Housing Director: 610-490-1846.
