    Care Services

    General Questions

    Across Scotland, we support hundreds of younger adults with physical disabilities, mental health issues or learning disabilities, helping them lead as normal lives as possible.

    We specialise in providing complex care support to people with profound or multiple disabilities. These types of services are typically intensive support. We support a number of people with such services, and these are provided on a round-the-clock basis

    Reablement services are increasingly provided to support people who have suffered an accident or sudden deterioration in health to regain essential skills. Carefully planned and delivered, good reablement packages can reduce or remove the need for ongoing care support, with great outcomes for clients and customers alike, we have a track record in providing reablement services across Scotland.

    Family carers are often under enormous stresses when delivering care themselves and receiving a little help every so often can be the difference between coping and not coping. We provide a range of bespoke respite services to ensure that family carers receive anything from a few hours to a few days to recharge their batteries and have some time away from the pressure of caring for a loved one.

    Sooner or later, most of us will need some sort of help to maintain our independence as we grow older. We support many older people with daily living needs, and personal care across Scotland. Our care workers travel around local communities helping people over 65 to get up in the mornings, wash, dress, prepare and eat meals and take their medicines.

    We take pride in providing a flexible and outcomes-focused service. To this end, as with meeting personal care needs, we offer support with practical tasks such as shopping, laundry, housework and managing personal affairs. We also help older people to get out of the house and maintain social contact with family and friends, reducing isolation that can affect older people living in the community.

    There are times when home care and support needs are more permanent and by providing long term care within the home and community setting, we often provide families and their loved ones with the option of staying at home rather than go into nursing homes or residential care.
    Our highly trained Home Care Workers can support with practical help at home, personal home care, and more complex and intensive care needs for people who need long term care and support.

    Long term care requirements may include dementia care, end of life care, ongoing disability or mental health support, stroke recovery, cancer treatment support, and other long-term illnesses.
