Carr Gomm in Highland

Carr Gomm has services throughout the Highlands that support people with our person-centred approach to care.

Support in Highland

Across Highland, we provide a home-based respite service for carers looking after family or friends. Our support can be anything from a few hours to longer, dependent on individuals’ needs, and can allow someone to pop to the shops, attend medical appointments or just have a break from their caring role.

The Highland care-at-home service helps to support people within their local community, promoting their independence and enabling people to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. Our role is not to do things for people but to work with them, and we support everyone differently.

To access support or to find out more information, please get in touch.
