At Crandeen we understand that the quality and consistency of support at home is important for those who would like to have more say, choice and flexibility, in the services they receive.
Whether it’s support in and around the home with day to day tasks, someone to accompany you to appointments, a companion to talk to or even more complex personal care our personal service will give you confidence to enjoy your lifestyle. This service, offering choice and companionship, is available across the whole of Aberdeenshire.
In a first for Scotland, we have also set down roots in the city of Aberdeen – at Hazelwood in the vibrant Countesswells area. Five new bungalows – designed and built by Dandara to highest modern and environmental standards – are the foundation of a wider premium lifestyle service for independent older people living at home.
Launching the service, our Director Karen Barr explains our approach: “We know from our research that people who need a little or a lot of help much prefer living in their own home, but with the option of having access to companionship and support if they need it, or indeed if they simply want that extra help, whether that’s with doing the garden or, in time, with their personal care. That’s what we’re offering at Hazelwood and across Aberdeenshire, safe in the knowledge that if they need any help at all, Crandeen Companions will be there for them.”
