Community Care

Community Care Services are available to frail older people, people with dementia, physical disabilities, mental health problems, sensory impairments, learning disabilities, children with disabilities or a disabling illness and people who are terminally ill.

We deliver services across the Western Isles in people's homes, through our seven residential care homes and three care units, and in our resource centres for adults with learning or physical disabilities. We also give funding to a number of local organisations to help them provide independent services, such as lunch clubs, support for carers, Dementia Services and advocacy, as well as formal care providers, including three independent care homes on the islands.
