Welcome to Home Instead Senior Care in South Lanarkshire, which is owned and run by myself, Alan Barr, my son Alistair and daughter Sophie, with the support of our Care Manager, Catherine Rea. We are a family business providing high quality at-home care services which make it easier for older people to be cared for within their own homes. We provide care to South Lanarkshire, including Lanark, Biggar and Hamilton.
At Home Instead we believe that people, no matter what age, are entitled to stay in the familiar surroundings of their own home - as that’s where they belong. Success to us is to improve the client’s quality of life, for as long as we can, by providing high quality care delivered by high quality CAREGivers, all within the clients own home. This is exactly what the majority of older people and their families want, it really does make a difference to the quality of their lives.
We support our clients to do whatever they enjoy doing and only provide the quality of service that we would be happy for our own family members to receive. We are a local business – I was born and bred in Lanark – and we offer a wide range of services that assist older people to remain independent, in their own homes. I faced this dilemma not so long ago with my own mother, who had dementia, and I found it extremely difficult to find someone who could help my father and I. This is one of the main reasons that I decided to set up Home Instead Senior Care in South Lanarkshire.
The services and care we provide are entirely tailored to the individual client and these services range from providing a companion who pops in a few times a week for a cup of tea and a chat; or assists with the weekly shopping; it may be as simple as taking someone to the park. We also recognise that our clients sometimes need some help with keeping the house tidy and additional help around meal times. These are simple tasks that are taken for granted but are sometimes a struggle as you get older. In addition to these simple luxuries we also provide a range of personal care services. We also provide specialist dementia care and support.
We will do what we say we are going to do and we will visit at a time to suit the individual………….and we don’t do 15 minute visits! We pride ourselves on the quality of CAREGivers, which is achieved through our structured recruitment and training process. Our CAREGivers will be punctual, understanding, caring and the same CAREGiver will come to the same client at every visit. We believe that the continuity that a one to one relationship between client and CAREGiver brings is fundamental to delivering a high quality reliable care service.
Our office is situated in the centre of Lanark, so if you or someone you love is looking for a high quality care provider or you have warm heart and would like to join our CAREGiver team, then give us a call on 01555 666474 or pop into the office.
