that first cared for us.

Senior Home Care Services for East Renfrewshire and South Glasgow

Our Glasgow South Bright Care office opened in January 2015.  We are located at Kirkhill House Office Park in Newton Mearns. Kirkhill House was a former mansion house which, along with its outbuildings, has been lovingly restored and renovated into modern offices.  We opened this office after receiving a number of enquiries from potential customers in the greater Glasgow area looking for our services.  This office is where the team that coordinate all our South Glasgow and East Renfrewshire clients are based.

Since our tentative beginnings in the west of Scotland, our Glasgow South office has grown rapidly as our clients see the real benefit of our fully tailored service designed to fit with their specific needs.

This office is run by registered manager Karen McGregor who has been with us since 2015.  She has grown the business and the team to around 50 staff providing our services to exclusively private customers in the area.

Our office has plenty parking and can be accessed from Broomhill Road East in Newton Mearns.  The team there will always give you a warm welcome!

Our Glasgow South Home Care Services

Respite Care

Whether for a few hours or over a few days, respite care can allow a relative a break from their caring roles allowing them to recharge their batteries.

Live-in Care

Usually provided by two carers working on a week on/week off basis, our professional carers are fully trained to take care of all domestic tasks, attend social events and outings with their client and provide assistance with personal care and medication needs.  With the carer living in the clients home with them they are able to provide consistent assistance and friendship which provides  peace of mind for the whole family.

Hourly Home Care

Provided in visits of two hours or more, we pride ourselves on our commitment to only delivering care in extended chunks of time to allow us to work in a consistent way and allow you to experience a higher quality of service.

Overnight Home Care

Providing a reassuring presence, our professional and friendly carers are available overnight between the hours of 10pm and 7am.

24 Hour Home Care

If more comprehensive care is required then we can prove care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This service is provided by only two or three personal carers over shifts of twelve or eight hours providing familiar faces and consistency for families and clients.
