Support for older people in Edinburgh 

We deliver support to people in their own home, to help them live the life they want. Some of the older people we support experience dementia, mental health issues, learning disabilities and other support needs. The service is tailored support to meet these needs and is delivered in a person centred way.

  • Experienced and dedicated team
  • Longstanding and established role in the local community

Our qualified and experienced staff include a service manager, support workers and senior support workers. The teams focus on making sure every individual receives a service they're happy with.


We support older people by helping them stay independent. We do this through group activities, in our resource centre and 1-2-1 activities designed to promote social inclusion and maintain life skills. Activities include:

  • Budgeting and shopping
  • Keeping safe and well
  • Building and keeping relationships
  • Communicating with others
  • Support with medication and treatment.


Everyone is in control of their support arrangements. We encourage everyone to participate and drive improvements through their influence and involvement.
