1st Focus Homecare

Helping families deliver home care and support in their own homes. Where to start with care at home?
There are a multitude of local care companies working in Edinburgh and 1st Focus Homecare is a company that has always strived to be one of the top care at home organisations in the City of Edinburgh. Social care providers in Edinburgh offer a range of domiciliary care services for the elderly living at home to assist with their everyday life and everyday tasks. 1st Focus Homecare offer a range of home care services which can benefit you or a loved one. We currently work closely with the local council (The City of Edinburgh) and the NHS where we take on care and support packages in the community and people waiting to be discharged from the hospital.

Care at home vs care homes
Getting older can be a difficult time and some people require assistance to enjoy everyday life and everyday tasks. Not everyone is ready to move into residential care and for some, the idea of moving into a care home may not be appealing. Although there are many benefits to residential care, these can all be replicated in your own home. A person's care needs vary depending on the person and any illness they live with and we can support you or a loved one to spend time in their own community, close to family and friends and most importantly, allow them to remain at home to live as independently as possible. Home care can provide support services ranging from personal care and support to respite care for a family member or live-in care and for those who are looking for an alternative to residential care. With care at home, you receive 1 to 1 care whereas, in a care home, there is a higher ratio of carer to service user. We really believe that we can deliver an alternative to a care home giving everyone involved peace of mind.

      Very happy with the service provided. Professional and reliable. My mum enjoys her weekly visits and it’s a relief for the family to know that someone is going in to see her. She likes to have a cup of tea and a chat with the carer. She also needs help with housework, shopping etc. which she gets.

      We needed some care and companionship for my wife after a long spell in hospital. 1st Focus Homecare was very responsive and quickly came up with the needed support at very short notice. The two members of staff quickly built a good relationship with my wife and they couldn’t have been more helpful or flexible in their approach.

      We needed some companionship for our mother twice a week and this was organised quickly for us. The two members of staff have developed a very good rapport with her in a short period of time. Our father is currently having some mobility issues and so we have increased our care. Again, this has been dealt with very efficiently to meet our needs. We have been very happy with the level of care and service.

      1st Focus Homecare has been providing care for my mum since mid-2022. A home visit was conducted to meet my mother and I, helping to establish an appropriate care package. My mother was listened to and her needs and wishes were taken fully on board. My mum had a desire for fixed carers and this has been catered to. One or two minor teething problems, as is to be expected in any new relationship as an understanding develops. Importantly where issues arose, 1st Focus were easily contactable and resolved any issues as soon as possible. 1st Focus carers have developed a great relationship with my mother and she is always delighted to see them. Care notes are always input, giving an additional level of reassurance.

      1st Focus Homecare have cared for my mum for the past five years and I can honestly say they are excellent! They are very flexible and will respond very quickly to any concerns/issues, of which I have to say are minimal! Compared to other companies I have heard about from colleagues, there is little comparison. Always arrive on time, at the specified time and as far as possible with the same two carers alternating, providing consistency not only for Mum but me too! If this is not possible, the company will always try to send out cover staff who know Mum, again, providing her with the reassurance she needs. Good care notes provide me with an update on returning home from work. It is very reassuring that I can rely on the fact that there is someone who is checking she is safe and well cared for during the day, as I work full time.
