Knowing that for many people remaining at home is a priority, Jackie has, in addition to pursuing her own nursing journey, also had the privilege of managing teams of live-in carers to support families at home. Much as this brings many successes, Jackie’s heart remains in providing one-to-one care and support, herself. Her efforts are now concentrated on what she personally can do to support people with dementia and their families, within their own homes.
You’re in Safe Hands
I offer a professional, reliable 24-hour respite care service, providing short respite breaks (2-7 nights) to those who can benefit from respite support.
Maintaining my nurse competencies with regularly updated medication training, you can feel safe in the knowledge that I am qualified to administer medication as prescribed.
Anyone looking for support for their care or anyone caring for a family member can contact their local authority Adult Social Work Department and ask for an assessment for a Self Directed Support (SDS) budget. Social Care in Scotland is now delivered under SDS legislation. It gives everyone who is assessed as eligible for social care, more control, choice and flexibility over how their care and support is arranged.
If, following assessment, you are eligible for support, a Support Plan will be agreed with you. If it meets your outcomes as agreed in your Support Plan, your SDS budget can be used towards the cost of a respite break.
