Are you looking for care?

At the Care & Wellbeing Co-op we understand the challenges of providing care for yourself or a loved one. We know that it is difficult to find your way around the care system – we know, because many of us have had to find our way through it too. We know too how the beautiful rural landscape we love so much puts challenges in our way to getting the care and support we need, from long Scottish winters, to remote locations, isolation from neighbours, long travel times, and poor public transport. We know that the solutions for care and wellbeing that work in a town or city may not work in the countryside.

We have set up the Care & Wellbeing Co-op to take a different approach to providing care. We know that big care companies do not always find it easy to offer services in our communities, but that the needs are still there. We want to hear from you about the needs you have and how our members can best meet them. We can offer you the chance to shape the care you receive and also to shape the nature of care and wellbeing services in your community for years to come.

To date, our members offer:

* Care services

* Befriending

* Herbal medicine

* Therapeutic and creative writing

* Walking

* Bio-dynamic gardening

* Transport

* Independent living solutions

* Advice on benefits

We will be actively seeking out services on client request. As our membership grows, so the range of services will expand.
