Crossroads (South Ayrshire) Care Attendant Scheme's principal objective is to provide a domiciliary service to relieve carers and their families in South Ayrshire from the stress of caring for persons who need constant supervision (who may include those who have a physical, mental or sensory impairment, are frail and confused, are chronically sick, or are terminally ill).
At the Scheme's discretion, a domiciliary service may be provided to care for disabled or elderly people living alone or with limited supervision.
The above objectives are pursued by the deployment of trained care attendants under the direction and supervision of the Scheme Co-ordinator and Assistant Co-ordinators.
The service is dedicated to treating carers and people with care needs with respect and sensitivity; with flexible recognition of their individual and diverse needs; and with due regard to their dignity and independence. The service is available for all carers regardless of age, gender, form of disability or ethnicity of the person being cared for. The Scheme is dedicated to providing a quality service within the standards set by Crossroads Caring Scotland.
