Private home care: Independent living in Edinburgh, Lothian & Fife – companionship, personal and live-in care

When you need a helping hand to continue living a full and active life in your own home, you only want the highest quality care.

MyLife arrange a wide variety of support and care for people in their own homes. Understanding the needs, lifestyle and personality of the person needing care is paramount.

Whether you need a companion for shopping trips, medical appointments, or simply just personal care at home, MyLife Edinburgh can provide the right person. They ensure all employees are equipped with the skills and the training to make a real difference to help their clients live the best life possible. MyLife can also provide a live-in Care Assistant, and offers care and support during end-of-life stages.

Difficult conversations 

Seeing someone you love struggle to do the things they’ve always done can be heartbreaking, and we don’t always know what to do or say. Sometimes we know that our loved ones are not living the best life they could be, because they don’t want to accept help. Suggesting they may not be managing, or that the time might have come for some additional help is a difficult conversation to have, and you may not even be sure exactly what help is available or would be best.

The easiest conversation to have is to arrange a friendly chat with those who know exactly what that’s like, and have years of experience and advice to share with you – with no obligation.

Sue Judge, MyLife Business Development Manager, says there is nothing they cannot work through to determine a great care solution to enhance a person’s life.

We help people to maintain their independence and live the best life that they can. Our care is not just task-orientated – we find out how you, or your loved ones, like to live and our care fits around that

After an initial chat, MyLife can arrange for Sue and one of her colleagues to meet with the client and their family to find out more.

At MyLife Edinburgh, you can find the most suitable care solution all in one place. This ensures continuity of care from the same people throughout your loved one’s life, even if their needs evolve over time. For many, having the chance to remain independent and in their own home rather than having to move into a care home is incredibly important for their quality of life.

What the clients say

The daughter of one client wrote to say: “I have been using MyLife Edinburgh for about five months to help with care for my elderly parents, both with dementia and have always been impressed with the friendly care given by the lovely carers and also all the staff in the office who have answered my queries promptly and efficiently.

“My mother, in particular, can be difficult with her dementia, and the carers proved to be so patient and caring with her. I would recommend MyLife to anyone seeking help with any loved one.” 

The staff here are so helpful, they went over and above when I was for sourcing care for mum. They give you the support you need and make you feel comfortable in every step of the process. I can’t recommend MyLife enough. Thank you.

A Google review a month ago gave MyLife five stars

Another five star review a month ago said: “The staff here are friendly and caring for their clients. They have been really helpful answering my questions. Very professional! Highly recommend.”
