Elite Care provide services for older people and adults in their own homes. This includes personal care and support for service users with a range of needs, including dementia, Alzheimer’s, acquired brain injury, mental health issues and learning disabilities. We help service users in their own homes with a broad range of personal care tasks, such as washing, dressing, toileting and continence care. Our service also supports service users with daily activities, including shopping, paying bills, meeting friends and attending medical appointments. We provide homecare in Edinburgh through Local Authority Home Care Contracts and individual arrangements, including developing packages of Self Directed Support.
All our work is carried out in accordance with the National Care Standards (Care at Home, Scotland), and we work with our service users and their families to ensure a clear understanding of the needs and the outcomes to be achieved. We are a service which continually strives for excellence and are proud of our record in achieving excellent evaluations for the second year running from the Care Inspectorate, across all three Quality Indicators. The most recent Inspection Report can be read online here.
We work closely with social services to support service users to remain independent in their own homes. In Scotland, free personal care is available for everyone aged 65 and over who have been assessed as requiring it by their local social services. We work with service users and their families to explore all the options available to them.
