1st Homecare was established in 2004 as a domestic cleaning company for people in the Falkirk area. As trust in our work developed, staff found themselves asked to help with the every day personal needs of their clients.
This was the point that 1st Homecare, as a care at home provider, was born.
Over the next few years we were able to grow our reputation and expertise, opening new care at home services in Aberdeen and Edinburgh; providing more person centred services for people who wanted the right support to help them live independently in their own home.
In 2014, 1st Homecare became part of Real Life Options (RLO), a registered charity and provider of support for people with learning disabilities. RLO’s staff, based throughout Britain, specialise in: autism, challenging behaviour, complex needs, mental health and home care.
This was a perfect combination, as the strength provided by being part of a larger Group, meant that new service development and growth was even more achievable.
1st Homecare now employs over 500 staff delivering tailored care and support packages across Dumfries and Galloway, Inverclyde, North Ayrshire, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, with our Head Office still based in Falkirk.
“Firstly can I say it was a pleasure to meet you at my Mum’s home last Friday.
It was refreshing also that Mum is now in receipt of a Personal Plan which I
must add she has not had before from other providers. The plan is in depth
and I am sure will be effective in ensuring she receives a high standard of
care, which meets her needs, dignity and personal choice.”
