Bright Carers

Our first-class training programme provides an immersive and comprehensive learning environment for our elite team of Bright Carers.

Our initial on-boarding equips our team with everything they need to know to about delivering world-class elderly care. The intensive face-to-face onboarding course covers everything from record keeping, medication, person-centred care, and confidentiality. The additional e-learning covers topics such as food hygiene and infection control. This blended-learning setup allows everyone's learning technique to play to their advantage.

Our subsequent and mandatory coaching and personal development sessions additionally allow Bright Carers to stay up to date with their skills and knowledge. Our team always feel empowered and equipped in their work.

Office Roles

All office-based staff complete a business-wide onboarding programme led by members of the Senior Management Team. This two-week programme allows new members of staff to fully understand the business environment and covers vital business awareness including marketing, regulatory bodies and standards, systems and IT, financial acumen, and customer service.

Family Member Workshops

We want everyone to thrive on their journey with Bright Care; this includes family members whose loved ones use our service.

We have two workshops available which are completely free and open to attend. The first is Moving and Handling, which empowers those who wish to know how to safely and securely move their family members. The second is Dementia which shares useful information about dementia, best practices for supporting a loved one and helping to enhance their life.

How To Find Bright Care Academy

What Makes Bright Care Unique

We find joy in alleviating the stress and frustrations associated with sourcing quality care provision for family members, and empowering elderly people – who just need supporting – to live at home.

We are for self-funding families.

By strategically choosing not to engage with council services, it means we can offer a fully bespoke and premium service.

We provide a fully-managed service.

This means we take the stress out of managing care provision yourself, so you can spend more quality time as a family.

We are regulated.

This means we are regularly reviewed by the Care Inspectorate, the single regulatory body for social care services set up by the Scottish Government.

We go the whole way.

We don’t believe in remaining at home ‘for as long as possible’. Instead, with the right foundations and resources, we believe it possible for elderly people to live out their days with dignity and grace in the comfort of their own homes.

We focus on relationships.

With visits from two hours or more, we place huge importance on building quality and meaningful relationships. We know that having a consistent face is imperative to providing premium care.

We excel at supporting elderly people.

By only focusing on this group, we have become experts in elderly care.
