We provide services to a range of local councils and carers centres throughout Glasgow. The feedback we receive through our quality assurance process has been overwhelmingly positive.
"Having support to stay in my own home is very important to me. I now have a carer who comes to help me get to bed and takes my dog Mischa out. I have the same carers who I have a great relationship with and I trust them."
We are an established company who have been providing support at home and in the community for ten years in the Glasgow area.
We are a user led orginisation that seek to empower people to live independant lives through making their own choices and controlling their own budgets.
Individuals using our service are put at the heart of our orginisation. Our aim is to match them with our experienced support workers so that it is possible to establish trust and continuity of care.
We provide a range of care packages, which are tailored to suit your needs as our staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our Care Manager Joeanne Hamilton can discuss with you the different levels of support we can offer and will ensure best practice at all times.
At Community Care Choice we will strive to provide you with the appropriate staff at the times you require.
Understanding and supporting people with dementia from Alzheimer’s Society:
“Living with dementia can have a big emotional, social, psychological and practical impact on a person. Many people with dementia describe these impacts as a series of losses and adjusting to them is challenging. This factsheet aims to give people – and carers in particular – a better understanding of what it is like to have dementia. It looks at ways to support someone to live well with the condition, based on that understanding. It also looks at how supporting someone with dementia can affect carers.

Some of the comments from our Care Inspectorate inspection last year.
When speaking with staff it was evident that they put client’s best interests first,making sure that they meet people’s expectations and needs.
We saw this when staff were working with clients and by reading support files.By providing a range of support staff help people live in their own home as independently and healthily as they can.
We thought that clients were very confident about exercising choice, and that they were provided with individualised care and support to improve their life opportunities.

The Carers (Scotland) Bill will be passed today and introduces a wide range of measures to improve support for carers and young carers.
The Bill will replace the current carer’s assessment with a new adult carer support plan and a young carer statement for all young carers; provide for the establishment of an information and advice service for carers in each local authority area introduce a duty to support carers whose needs cannot be met by general services in the community and require local authorities to prepare local carer strategies for their areas.
