Crossroads is here to help carers
CROSSROADS is a locally-managed charity in North Argyll aiming to provide a short break care service in the home.
If you are looking after a parent, partner, child or neighbour who cannot manage due to age, illness or disability, the organisation might be able to help.
Crossroads provides practical support in people’s homes and aims to deliver a high quality service in the community to enable carers to take time off.
Crossroads provides personal care, social stimulation and a welcome break for the carer so they can have a rest while being assured that the person they care for is being well looked after.
Crossroads is a voluntary organisation funded by the local authority and private individuals. It delivers a service in the Oban area and, when possible, on the islands and in the Lorn area. It is possible to be referred through social services, depending on your circumstances. Or you can contact the organisation directly on 01631 562277.
All the care attendants are trained in the conditions that they may encounter. They are trained in first aid, health and safety, food and hygiene plus they have an ongoing training programme.
