Our Scottish Borders In-Home Care For Seniors

Respite Care

We understand that permanent carers and loved ones can only do so much so we are here to offer support as and when needed. Our respite care service allows you decide when and for how long our service is needed. Whether respite care is needed for a few hours, a few days and even overnight if necessary.

Live in Care

One of our most comprehensive care offerings, live in care can ensure that those in need of a more dedicated level of care are well taken care of. Our live in carers are fully equipped to handle domestic tasks around the home as well as providing assistance with medical and person needs. An active social life is encouraged and our Perthshire carers are proactive in getting clients out to their favourite social events and outings. Two carers get to know the client and their needs personally with a week on/week off setup.

Hourly Home Care

Sometimes less can be more and our hourly care service is available to offer convenience and assurance to our clients as and when needed. Our visits are a minimum of 4 hours this service can be arranged in advance so that our carers are able to set about fulfilling the important tasks that need done or any assistance that is required. This service is both convenient and affordable.

Welcome Home Service

For clients returning from a stay in hospital or rehab, this service has been extremely helpful. Sometimes it unfortunately isn’t possible for a loved on to prepare for their arrival and that’s why we have made this service available. To ensure that any small jobs are taken care of, shopping and cooking are done and vitally, our client is returning to a warm home and a warm welcome. This welcome home service can also provide a meet and greet and hospital pickup beforehand.

Overnight Home Care

One of our more dedicated services, overnight home care is available throughout Perth, Kinross and the surrounding areas for all clients. Providing comfort and dedicated care at a time when people can feel their most vulnerable, our overnight care service covers the hours from 10pm to 7am allowing our carers to assist with settling for the night, rising and having a sound night.
