New Island Home Care Service Launched

Cath GriffithsCarers in Scilly can now arrange overnight, in-home care for their loved ones.

And the new service should allow people who care for others to leave the islands for quality time on their own, meetings or medical appointments.

The new service, which will include personal care, is being launched by Cath Griffin.

Cath was a nurse before she moved to the islands in 1998 and has spent the last 15 years working with elderly members of the community at Park House.

She hopes to fill a much-needed gap in homecare provision in Scilly, helping islanders to maintain their independence at home.

That could include visits to the off-islands if overnight accommodation is available.
