Gowrie Care opens new office to provide better support for people in Alyth
A growing Alyth based learning disability and Homecare team and their clients are set to benefit from a better working environment in the town’s centre after their new office was opened in Pitnacree Street last week.
The new office will allow Gowrie Care’s teams to expand their services, which will help them to provide better homecare for people in and around Alyth.
Managing director of Gowrie Care, Damian McGowan, said: “Gowrie Care’s long established Alyth Learning Disability service has gone through a period of sustained growth and this new office will allow the team to provide vital care and support to more people in the Strathmore and East Perthshire area.
“The office, which will also be a base for our expanding Homecare team, will offer our staff better facilities for team meetings and knowledge sharing so that they are better equipped to continue to provide an excellent support service to those in our care.”
Part of the Hillcrest Group of Companies, Gowrie Care’s Alyth Learning Disability service has three teams of fully trained staff, who all work to support and meet the individual needs and preferences of people with complex health requirements or behaviours that may be challenging.
Damian McGowan added: “Our fully trained staff team has a wealth of experience to offer when supporting people to achieve positive outcomes in living healthy, happy, and meaningful lives and this new office will enable this service to grow.”
The opening was attended by family members of the people Gowrie Care support, staff from across the Hillcrest Group, Gowrie Care board members, Reverend Mike Erskine, Councillor Dennis Melloy and other representatives from the local community.
Gowrie Care provides support to more than 700 people across Angus, Dundee, Edinburgh, Fife, Glasgow and Perthshire for a client group of people with learning disabilities and people with mental health issues, homeless people, people with addictions and people on the autism spectrum.
