Located in the heart of Cramond, Home Help Me Care was founded by Diane in 2014, with Rickie joining in 2016. Our ethos is simple, we provide good old fashioned home help and care.
As the population continues to grow, many older people begin to face underlying health conditions, with many people becoming more frail. Some of people maybe diagnosed with conditions such as dementia, a a condition which is associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person's ability to perform everyday activities. Caring for someone with dementia can bring with it a spectrum of emotions. It can be rewarding and challenging in equal measure. If you’re in a caring role putting that person first can often be your default, but you can’t overlook your own needs.
At Home Help Me Care we focus on providing a safe environment for your loved one, providing them with quality companionship and care that makes all the difference.
Along with their carefully selected team, Diane & Rickie will assess you or your loved ones' needs and agree a personal support plan; you'll be engaged every step of the way.
We are registered with the Care Inspectorate to provide care and support services and employees are registered with SSSC.
