In-Home Care with Companionship and Quality time
Our in-home care services are not one size fits all; they are tailored to the unique needs of our individual clients. In-Home care has many different names: domiciliary care, care at home, home care, companion care or sometimes home help. In essence it is the provision of care and support for people living otherwise independently within their own homes through a routine pattern of daily or weekly care visits to your home. Supporting people at home is a satisfying and rewarding alternative to residential care.
We understand that getting care in place and understanding your options can be daunting, but we want to make it as simple as possible.
High quality home care allows our clients to retain a level of independence that cannot be matched by care in a nursing home environment.
The Alternative to a Care Home
- Stay in the home you love surrounded by your own things
- You tell us what sort of carer you think will suit you best
- Get introduced to your carer before you agree to go ahead
- Increase or reduce your care arrangements flexibly over time to suit your needs
- Continue to maintain your social connections
- Maintain a sense of control and independence over your life
- Enjoy one-to-one care on your terms
Specialists in privately delivered home care
Fully personalised and tailored home care, 24 hours a day with emergency call out service.
Hourly in home care during the day is perfect as a premium alternative to the limitations of statutory care which is becoming increasingly insufficient. Private care provides people with choice and control over the care at home that they receive. We lead the field in providing high quality care exclusively for self-funding clients in Scotland. Hourly Care is a starting point, but as needs change we can develop and evolve your care package with you right up to live in care or 24 hour care.
We truly understand the importance of solid foundations when creating care packages. Every day we’re privileged to witness the compound benefits for entire families of high quality, consistent companion carers – Tim Cocking
As a family-run business, we know that the needs of our elderly clients go beyond routine practical tasks. That’s why you will always hear us talk about care and companionship. You’ll notice we talk a lot about companion care and we refer to our carers as companion carers.
We understand the need to balance practical support with emotional support. Ensuring our visits last 2 hours or more means that our care staff build truly meaningful relationships with their clients.
We know that for our clients a friendly and familiar face is essential. It is important to us that you know and like the person who looks after you; after all that’s how we build lasting relationships. We truly understand the benefits that consistent and robust care arrangements bring to the whole family.
We always provide introductions for you with the staff who we think would be best suited to work with your loved one. Asking for your feedback and making any changes if required before a package of care starts is essential. A care package must be built with solid foundations for it to be successful longer term.
High quality care at home allows our clients to retain a level of independence and dignity that might not be matched when staying in a care home.
A realistic alternative to residential care
In-home care allows people to retain a level of independence, choice and control that would not be possible in a care home. Staying in your own home also means you continue to live in a familiar environment, often the family home of 50 years or more, and with family, friends and other social connections intact.
The emotional distress associated with selling the family home in order to move into residential care can be painful for everyone involved. For many, their own home is going to be a better environment for care.
- Friendly companionship and genuine social support.
- Help with daily personal care activities that you cannot complete safely without assistance, e.g. getting dressed, washing, going to the toilet.
- Help with housework, preparation of meals and shopping.
- Support with the administration of medications.
- Company and assistance in running errands and appointments.
- Assistance with reading and handling household administrative tasks.

Regulation of Care
We are registered with the Care Inspectorate. The Care Inspectorate’s job is to regulate and inspect services for quality in Scotland. Each of our offices receives an annual visit from an inspector which lasts around two days. We currently maintain grade 5 (‘very good’) in all areas we have been inspected across all our services! Find out more about their role in our information section. You can also visit their website and read our recent inspections.
We also regularly audit and inspect our own services through our in-house peer-to-peer audit program run by our managers.
Bright Care have no helped me with two of my older relatives. Both had very different and complex needs. The two different members of staff who we have experienced have been positive, caring and provided excellent service. I can't rate them highly enough and would have no hesitation recommending this company.Anne StocksGlasgow
I would recommend Margaret or Ranjit to anyone. Anything I ask of Margaret she does it – even my gardening and that's when she finishes inside the house first. So I compliment Bight Care in their choice of applicants. The girls are also friendly and trustworthy. They are a gift from God.Eve CrawfordEdinburgh
Having been with Bright Care for over two years, it is my privilege to recommend them. The professionalism of their staff is first class. I have all my needs met by the competence and flexibility of my carers.Jack GrahamLondon
Bright Care have been really excellent carers, explaining requirements we were unaware of, steering us expertly and helpfully, and offering to undertake extra tasks when we were pressed for time. We could scarcely have asked for a better service in any way.Kate JacksonStirling
