Home Care - often described as ‘home help’, ‘care at home’, ‘care in the home’, ‘at home care’, or ‘domiciliary care’ – gives many older people the extra help they need to enjoy a good quality of life in the safety and comfort of their own homes.
If you or a loved one’s home care service from Edinburgh Council has recently been re-assessed, like others you may have been told that you no longer qualify for a package of care. Quite understandably you may be worried about how you will cope and what to do next.
Being able to live at home can be one of the most important comforts in an older person’s life and if family and friends can’t always be there, Home Instead Senior Care can help. With 100 offices in the UK, we are the first office in Scotland. Together, our goal is to become the UK's most admired care company by changing the face of ageing.
We take time to get to know our clients; give our CAREGivers specialist knowledge, skills and support; focus on what our clients can do as opposed to what they can’t; match our clients and CAREGivers & ensure continuity of CAREGiver. Quality is everything to us, which is why we only employ the most enthusiastic, friendly and caring staff.
The care we offer is different. We provide high quality, non-medical, companionship based care and support to older people; helping them to maintain their quality of life and independence in their own homes. We offer a broad range of services:
- Light Housekeeping
- Local Transportation & Errands
- Meal Preparation
- Respite Support
- Convalescence Support
- Personal Care
- Specialist Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care
We really are passionate about providing the highest quality of care to all our clients; some funding their care privately, some using Attendance Allowance and other entitlements.
For advice and to find out more about our services, simply call us on 0131 300 0599. You don’t need to be referred to us by anyone, nor do you need to have an assessment by a social worker. We’re just a call away.
