Our Award-Winning Elderly Care

Tim and Louise Cocking founded Bright Care in 2009 after experiencing the challenges of securing a premium and fully managed in-home care provider for Tim’s grandmother. 

From one small office in Edinburgh, to multiple branches throughout the UK, the vision is to be the UK’s go-to private and premium home care company for seniors. By attracting and nurturing exceptional talent, building cohesive teams, and being an active part of local communities, we will continue to deliver outstanding and award-winning care.
