Tailor Maid Home Care is an award winning family business based in East Renfrewshire, caring for the people to remain independent in their own home.
Established since 2010, by sisters Shirley Dickson and Jennifer Woods they always apply the “Mums test “when recruiting new staff ie: only recruit Care Practitioners who have the same values, compassion and attitude as they would be comfortable with looking after their own parents.
We take pride in providing care to a very high standard and have been finalist of the Scottish Care “Care at Home Provider of the Year” prestigious award in 2017,2018 and again in 2020.
This recognition was particularly special for us this year as our Team as we were selected from hundreds of other care providers from all over Scotland. Despite being runner up, we are so proud of our Team who have all gone above and beyond and continue to go that extra mile. As well as supporting clients with all personal care, domestic support , companionship and medications, we have become a huge part of client’s lives who have been cut off from families due to social distancing restrictions in place. Isolation issues, keeping active and mental health have become a huge priority in our care and we have embedded covid-19 improvements to ensure we keep our clients connected with families and friends.
Supporting clients to try out new activities and client spotlight features in our newsletters to share amazing stories of their past with other have been well received. Courtesy calls from our team for those experiencing loneliness has been really helpful to keep in touch and break up a long day. We have used technology to brighten up clients days with tik tok ,Pod casts and you tube being watched for the first time by many.
In social visits we have supported clients to try new things and many have tried baking, crafts , jigsaw swaps and we are about to start a Tomato Plant challenge. Memory cards and puzzles have been distributed. Missing out on their social times at local clubs has impacted on their mental health and our Tailor Maid Team have tried our utmost to brighten up their day!
Regulated annually by the Care Inspectorate, our Grading reflects our Top Grading standards of Care and we are highly regarded in the community and work in partnership with Health and Social Care Sector.
Our Care Practitioners are fully trained in SVQ2/3 Health and Social care qualifications and we take pride in the team all being Dementia Specialists. We undertake training from Stirling University “Best Practice in Dementia”.
During such worrying times with the current Pandemic , our team are committed to protecting all clients against Covid19 and all staff have undertaken enhanced infection control training to ensure your protection. Staff wear full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) with all interactions with clients. We are all currently being vaccinated and have a mandatory COVID-19 Test to take each week to ensure our clients safety.
