WELCOME TO LIFECARE.

WELCOME TO AN EDINBURGH-BASED CHARITY THAT’S HERE TO EMPOWER AND ENRICH THE LIVES OF OLDER PEOPLE IN EDINBURGH.

Welcome to a completely new approach to care that’s received the highest level grading on inspection and made a positive difference to those we support and their loved ones.

Whether you’re looking for care at homehelp around the home, a day club, help to get out and do more of what you enjoy, or even help to decide which of those would be right for you or someone you care for, you’ve come to the best possible place. Welcome.

WE'RE 75 YEARS YOUNG.

SINCE 1941, WE’VE SUPPORTED AND EMPOWERED THE OLDER PEOPLE OF EDINBURGH.

We celebrated our landmark birthday in style with those we care for, their families and, of course, our lovely staff, volunteers, donors, friends and community.

DEMENTIA. AND HOW IT NEEDN'T DEFINE YOU.

SOME SUFFERS AND THEIR FAMILIES SAY DEMENTIA FEELS LIKE THE REAL THEM IS LOCKED DEEP INSIDE.

They are still very much there, but often inaccessible. LifeCare will find a way to reach them and bring extra years of zest.

Donate, Fundraise and Volunteer

MAKE A DONATION. MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Thanks to your donations, we’ve helped many older people remain as independent, sociable and active as possible.

With your help, we can enrich the lives of many more.
