Caring for the generation
that first cared for us.

Private Home Care in East Dunbartonshire

Our Dunbartonshire office opened in 2015.  We called it our ‘Dunbartonshire’ office in reference to the two main local authority area that we typically cover from this office but we can cover north Glasgow and parts of Stirling from this office as well.  We are based in Bearsden but can provide our services to all outlying areas.

Currently our smallest office, we provide full service private care with our committed team there.  We have around 50 clients cared for through this office.

Areas We Serve

Our services are available throughout North Glasgow & surrounding areas.  Bearsden, Milngavie, Lennoxtown, Lenzie, Kirkintilloch, Bishopbriggs.  We cover extensive parts of the rural north of Glasgow too right up to Loch Lomond.

Hours of Operation

Our Bearsden office is open Monday to Friday from 9am – 5pm.  From 5pm – 9pm we have a reduced staff team working from home available to you on the same contact number.   Out with these times we have an on call system, so there is always someone available to speak to from each office 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Our Dunbartonshire Home Care Services

Respite Care

Designed around your needs, respite care is for families who are currently caring for loved ones but need a break.

Live-in Care

Often there is the need for an elderly relative to have a more substantial level of comprehensive care.  Our Dunbartonshire business has a team of well trained and committed staff to provide long term live in care and companionship. Care is generally provided by two carers on a week on week off basis so those in our care can get to know the same friendly faces.

Hourly Home Care

The time and requirements of our service are completely in your hands. Our hourly home care service can be tailored so that we are there at a time that is most suitable for anything from two hours upwards. Like any of our services, laying the right foundations in setting a service up is crucial.

Welcome Home Service

Preparing dinner, doing the shopping and a light housekeeping. These are just a few of the services our carers can provide to make sure that the families we serve have  a warm welcome home from hospital.

Overnight Home Care

Our carers are fully trained to provide the highest level of overnight care. Whether our elderly clients have difficulty during the night, in the morning or just need the security and comfort of someone present in the house to help out.  Overnight home care is provided between the hours of 10pm and 7am.

Call Out & Emergency Service

Knowing we are there 24 hours a day to respond to any unforeseen events  can mean a lot to our clients.  That is why we offer all of our clients a 24 hour call out and emergency service. Office staff are available at all hours on a dedicated number and can assist you in any way required including getting in their car to assist in practical ways.
