Cordia, Scotland’s biggest homecare provider is now operating in Glasgow in partnership with the Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP).

The service ‘Supported Living’ is specially tailored for elderly service-users with complex needs, supporting them within their own homes to help live semi-independently – reducing the risk of hospital or care home admission.

Around 82 service-users across the city are currently registered with plans to increase this to 140 by December. Frances McMeeking, Cordia’s head of care services said said the company was working in partnership with Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership to manage referrals.

“The operations team is growing and we’re actively recruiting,” said Ms McMeeking.

Cordia employs 2,800 home-carers and 161 co-ordinators – carrying out 95,000 visits to 6200 elderly service-users in Scotland every week.
