Our Edinburgh In-home Care For Seniors

Respite Care

Tailored specifically to your situation our respite care service can provide you with as much or as little service as you  require, even including overnight home care if necessary. This service can allow a family member a few days or nights rest.

Live in Care

The most holistic type of service available.  A live in carer lives their life alongside  our clients day and night.  They will assist clients in what ever they require from practical tasks to day to day companionship as well as assisting them in running their home.  All activities of daily living can be managed by the carer and an active social life can be maintained by accompanying them to social events and outings. Care is generally provided by two carers on a week on week off basis to provide consistency and continuity.

Hourly Home Care

Offering visits from two hours or more at a time to suit you.  Our carers are both kind and warm-hearted ensuring you a quality caring service whether for two hours or more.

Welcome Home Service

It’s important to have a warm welcoming home to return to after a hospital stay if you live alone and we understand that someone can’t always be there but we can be.  For clients returning from a stay in hospital we ensure all of the important jobs are taken care of from an initial meeting and lift home from the hospital to unpacking bags, taking care of laundry, light housekeeping, shopping and meal preparation.

Overnight Home Care

Overnight home care is available throughout Edinburgh and the surrounding area.  Providing comfort and peace of mind, our overnight care service covers the hours from 10pm to 7am allowing our carers to assist you with settling down for the night, assisting throughout the night and assisting in the morning if required.

24 Hour Home Care

If a more comprehensive service is required for round the clock assistance, 24 hour home care is an option which can provide for even the most complex needs or palliative care.  Two or three carers will work together over twelve or eight hour shifts to ensure compassionate care and assistance is delivered in a consistent way.

Call Out & Emergency Service

An assurance that we are always available is one reason why our clients and their families feel confident and comfortable working with us.  We have team members available 24 hours via our dedicated call out and emergency phone number.

Meet The Office Team

Meet each of our dedicated and highly valued staff working in our Edinburgh office.  We are proud to have them as part of our family along with a wider care team of about 90 staff.
