Abstract Objective: Its objective was to understand domiciliary care in the perspective of healthcare professionals that have experience in it considering the peculiarities of their day-to-day work. Methods: This is a descriptive and exploratory study with a qualitative approach. The study subjects were seven professionals working in two domiciliary care teams of an emergency unit in a Brazilian capital. Results: The results indicate that home care is an innovative alternative for the construction of a different healthcare approach that reduces healthcare system costs and enable a humanized, interdisciplinary and inventive logic. Conclusion: In this perspective home care is an important reorganization space and exemplifies a new work dynamic in which knowledge sharing predominates. Nevertheless an education directed to the formation of professionals able to act on the demands and needs of this new scenario remains challenging.
