At Home in East Lothian employs all its own staff to care for our clients. We do not use zero hours contracts, and pay our staff above the Scottish Living Wage. You can therefore be assured that our staff care about older people, and share our values.
Home Care Workers work separately or in pairs, depending on the needs of clients. None of our staff are allowed to work on their own until they have successfully passed our induction training.
At Home in East Lothian has a bank of staff who have been interviewed and checked, but who are waiting to be matched with clients. If you agree to take a service from us, we will match the best person for you – someone who lives in the same area and who shares your interests. We will have discussed with you what kind of person you want to provide your care and will respect your preferences.
If you find you don’t like the person, we will match you with someone else.
Our staff group also includes a qualified fitness instructor who is available to support clients to go swimming, or do some exercise.
