Local MP officially opens SRS Care Solutions' new Carluke office
A Scottish company specialising in providing home-based care solutions has opened a brand-new office in Carluke to reach people requiring help outside of hospital in the region.
SRS Care Solutions, a complimenting business arm of Group SRS (Scottish Recruitment Solutions), welcomed Angela Crawley, local MP for Lanark and Hamilton East, along with local businesses, members of the community and service users for the special opening.
During her visit, Ms Crawley judged a ‘Bake Off' competition which was embraced by several businesses in the area, including Carluke Development Trust, Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland and LG Lash & Wax, who brought their bakes to the event.
Providing exceptional home-based care services across Carluke and the surrounding area, SRS Care Solutions' new Carluke team is already providing over a thousand hours of home care to service users in Carluke and the surrounding villages every week, from Lesmahagow to Forth. The new team have plans to continue to grow the number of hours of care provided over the coming months.
Led by Service Manager and trained nurse Lisa Milne, the new premises will act as a base for a group of Team Leaders who are reaching people with a range of care needs in the area. With word spreading about the home care provision offered by SRS Care Solutions, Lisa has plans to keep building on the number of hours of care provided in the region and reach more service users. Lisa said:
"As someone who is Carluke born and bred, it is wonderful to ‘come home' and work closely with so many people in the local community and make a real difference to our service users, helping many of them regain some of the independence which they could lose without the option of home-based care which we can help with. I'm delighted to be leading our newly formed Carluke team who are doing a fantastic job delivering the highest standards of care.
"It's been lovely officially opening our new office and welcoming so many people from the local community, including Angela Crawley MP, who very generously has taken the time to meet us and judge our highly competitive ‘Bake Off' competition."
Angela Crawley, Member of Parliament for Lanark and Hamilton East, commented:
"I am delighted to welcome SRS Care Solutions to my constituency and wish them every success in their new office.
"They have a great track record of supporting some of the most vulnerable people in society and I look forward to working with them in the future."
Employing 180 staff, SRS Care Solutions is the largest arm of Group SRS providing 4000 hours of care every week across Scotland. Group SRS also includes SRS Training which specialises in training staff in multiple sectors including the care industry, and SRS Partnership which provides recruitment solutions.
