The Glasgow City care service is delivered by Glasgow City Council under the management of the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership.
The Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership is a partnership between Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, who plan and deliver health and social care services together for Glasgow. A key priority of the partnership is to make sure that care and support enables people to continue to live in their own homes and communities.
There is so much more to home care than people think. At Glasgow City care services our home carers provide a lifeline which allows vulnerable citizens of Glasgow to remain independently in their own homes for longer. From administering medication to using specialist equipment, our highly trained home carers deliver a vital service which enhances the quality of service users' lives.
If you are a compassionate individual who has what it takes to make a difference to people's lives then you can start your career in home care today.
