Welcome to LifeCare Edinburgh.

COVID 19 Appeal

Introducing LifeCare

We specialise in dementia care, home care and in care for older people. We’re all about helping you to keep on living independently and enjoy the things that make you smile.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Services update from 1 July 2020

The Outreach service is operating in the community while adhering to current Government guidelines. New client enquiries are welcome.

The Help at Home service continues to provide essential shopping services with protective measures in place. As restrictions ease we are also extending the other support available. Unfortunately at this time, as our capacity is limited, new enquiries for household help will be waitlisted – those requiring help with shopping will continue to be prioritised.

The Café is now open for breakfast takeaways on Monday-Fridays, 9am-11am.  The Café also provide free meals to those most vulnerable and isolation in partnership with the Help at Home service.

Our Clubs are currently closed and staff are supporting clients and carers by telephone on a daily basis.

Vintage Vibes successful ‘Biscuit and A Blether’ telephone based service supporting vulnerable over 60s is winding down at the end of July.  Vintage Vibes is preparing to shift towards socially distanced face-to-face outdoor visits by volunteers following Government advice in the near future.

The Venue re-opened on the  14th September with regular classes. We are now taking new bookings from October onwards (provided the Government gives venues permission to re-open) so if you are looking for a venue for your class or event do not hesitate to contact us for a provisional booking (enquiries@lifecare-edinburgh.org.uk). Please note that there will be new health safety rules that will need to be followed at the centre including wearing a face covering, using one way system, using hand sanitising stations etc.

The Strollers and Foodies Groups remain paused for the time being but will resume when it is safe to do so. However, the History Talks and Conversations Group have recommenced in July  and are meeting online using Zoom. Please check LifeCare’s Facebook Page (@LifeCare.Edinburgh) for up-to-date information on how you can join in.
