Our Services

Continuing to live at home proves the best option for older people and losing the ability to cope with day to day tasks can make this difficult. People recovering from serious illness or with a permanent disability often face problems despite allocated care provision. Engaging with the Friends at Home Service will help to make independent living possible and deal with anxieties. 


Changing a book at a library, shopping, keeping the garden tidy, taking a short walk can help improve health and wellbeing, reduce social isolation and increase confidence in coping with everyday situations.

The Friends at Home Service will enable people to attend clinics, continue their usual activities and manage the running of their household. It can provide a friendly face and ear when people feel at their most isolated and vulnerable.

If someone does not want a visit but needs reassurance then we can arrange daily or weekly phone calls to check that all is well, and if there is need for help such as transport to a medical appointment.

Footcare

In December 2017 we introduced an additional new service for footcare.  The toenail cutting and advice service started operating in the Bonar Bridge, Ardgay, Rosehall and Lairg areas.  We have plans now to extend this service to other parts of East and Central Sutherland.  The service consists of simple footcare and advice for peole who have difficutly accessing footcare due to cost and transport difficulties.  We will also run public information events in order to inform people of the importance of foot health to their future mobility and wellbeing.
