HARRIS VOLUNTARY SERVICE

Care at Home
Crossroads (Harris) Care Attendant Scheme Crossroads (Harris) was set up and accepted its first client in August 1985. Crossroads exists to  care for carers. We provide a care attendant to go into the home and take over the carers duties  and responsibilities to give the carer a break.  We co-operate with Social Work, Community Health Services, Hospital Discharge Team and other  voluntary organisations to provide a professional seamless service geared to the carers needs.   The usual allocation per carer per week is seven hours, but the Co-ordinator has discretion to  provide additional hours where necessary. The hours can be provided as a block or can be divided  throughout the week. Visits range from thrice daily to two days a week, to occasional.   Crossroads (Harris) is funded by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar Social Work Department, Mental Illness  Specific Grant, Western Isles Health Board, Community fund-raising and donations.   There is no charge for the service.   For more information on Crossroads please contact :   Morag Munro - morag.munro@harrisvs.org.uk or Christine Morrison - christine.morrison@harrisvs.org.uk Telephone: 01859 502 171   Crossroads Archive Pages
