The Braemar Care Initiative moves forward... Aimi Blueman
A community engagement meeting was held at the end of October to share progress and to establish the level of commitment from the community in being involved with this project, either as carers or as volunteers. The initiative developed from the Community Action Plan, the aim being to improve the care provided to the people of Braemar to enable them to stay in their own homes and community for as long as possible. It is felt the best way to provide this care is to employ and train carers within Braemar; in effect, the community caring for itself. Carers would be supported by volunteers offering support with things such as transport, shopping, housework, befriending etc. Possible ideas at the moment include buying in services from an existing care provider to employ and train carers on behalf of a Community Trust, or for a Community Trust Charity to employ directly.

The meeting was well attended and included representatives from the Scottish Government, Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership, NHS Grampian and Mycare (a care provider). If you would like to get involved either as a paid/trained carer or as a volunteer then please get in touch with Carole Paterson patersoncarole@yahoo.co.uk Tel: 07708 001798.
