Care at Home and Respite

The Tagsa Home Care Service provides flexible support to meet both the individual needs of the clients and the needs of their family or informal carers.

It is a support service that allows people to live well in their own homes for as long as they want and can. As well as the traditional services such as preparing meals, personal and domestic support, we also provide companionship and social interaction that reduces the feeling of isolation and maintains their contacts with the community and improves the individual’s overall wellbeing, whilst at the same time allowing carers respite and enabling them to continue in their caring role.

Within this service we provide domestic support and can include assistance with shopping, accompanying to appointments, bill paying, domestic duties, food preparation and control, health and hygiene related tasks, social interaction etc. The service is provided for clients with all types of disabilities, for adults at risk and people living with long term conditions. It is aimed at those who are in need but who do not necessarily meet criteria through statutory assessments. Emergency support, including overnight cover is provided to cover unexpected critical demand, such as a home carer having an accident or an unexpected occurrence.

We also provide the option to users of directly purchasing home care at a subsidised rate.

A Commissioned Respite Service is provided to carers who have been assessed by the Comhairle to be entitled to support under the 2018 carers act.

Might be that you need a regular break from caring to deal with your own day-to-day affairs and family commitments, or a couple of days off a week to work or study. You might need to take a couple of weeks off to address your own health issues, or to simply rest and recharge your batteries.

We aim to suit the individual and their circumstances, being flexible to meet the needs of the individual and their family. Through the daily support we provide, and regular review of care plans we make sure that the care we provide is personalised and responsive to any change in circumstances.

Tagsa Uibhist also operates an out of hours On-Call service so that we have continuity of care and support and supervision for our team of carers. provides advice and hands on support as required.
