Carers in Edinburgh image of nurse

Established in 2021, but we go way back!

We're a team of health care professionals, Nurses and Carers who have decades of experience in caring for people in their homes and in hospital. We started this company because we wanted to deliver excellence and high quality care in Edinburgh, Lothians & Yorkshire. We also saw an opportunity to provide care training to unpaid carers and organisations. We want to be known for our dedication to our clients.

So What makes us different?

Our experience and diverse skills range from Mental Health Support, Learning Disability, Adult Nursing and Management of Care in the Hospital and Community. We always offer person centred care and support to our clients during their most vulnerable times in their lives whilst promoting independent living at home. Our services enable people to achieve their personal aspirations and we promote independence through goal setting and Reablement approaches. Our Carers in Edinburgh, Lothians & Yorkshire actively involve our clients in shaping their care and support and always put them at the centre of every decision.


YOU are the focus of our efforts and resources. Getting it right for YOU, matters to us.

Professional & Friendly

We get to know YOU so that our best work is determined by the outcomes YOU want to achieve.

Reliable & Dependable

The care we deliver is crucial to the people we serve. We go the extra mile for YOU.

A day in the life of a carer

A carer’s job is demanding but can be rewarding and enriching.  Carers are continually multitasking as their client is dependent on their reliability and competence. Our services are mainly carried out on an hourly basis.  Carers are on hand to offer support clients with the highest standard as they have this duty of care.
