Better at Home Care was set up in 2015 and is owned by Dr Sharon McCann (PhD). Sharon is a former Health Services Researcher at the University of Aberdeen, Health Services Research Unit, where for many years she led and championed research on health care users and the contributions and experiences of people who use health services. 

Sharon was inspired to set up Better at Home Care after her own personal experience of struggling to find some extra support for an elderly family member who needed help with domestic tasks, transport to social activities and all-important companionship. This type of home care was very difficult to find and from speaking with many other families in the same situation Sharon and her family realised they were not alone in experiencing these problems. 

This led Sharon to believe in the importance of setting up a local family owned private home care service specialising in providing companionship, social support and domestic home care assistance which people could use exclusively on its own, or as a “ top up”  to any other services they may receive.  In particular, for seniors living in rural areas, these types of services can be vital in supporting them to remain living independently in their own homes and communities. 


You come first in everything we do

As a family run business, our promise is very simple - You come first in everything we do. We place huge value on our relationship with you, and our services  are personalised just for you.

We consider it a privilege to support and assist you in your home. For that reason we are very particular about the people we select to work for us. We only select those who share our core values and genuine passion for supporting seniors in their homes.

We are a companionship, social support and domestic home care company and do not provide any personal caring to clients in their home (e.g helping with personal washing, dressing, continence care, medication reminders etc). However, we take our responsibilities very seriously and so as a matter of “good practice” we ensure our home care assistants are personally interviewed with full references checked  and are subject to full PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Adults) checks.
