Crossroads Kincardine and Deeside provides practical help including personal care, regardless of the age, disability or illness of the person being cared for. It offers short respite breaks to carers and the people they care for.

Each Crossroads scheme has an autonomous committee. This branch has been operating in the Kincardine and Deeside area since 1991 and covers a large rural area from Braemar in the north to Fettercairn in the south.

Crossroads provides trained part time Care Attendants to enable a carer to have a break from constant supervision.

The day to day operation is handled by a Scheme Manager who assesses the particular need and allocates a Care Attendant to provide relief at any time during the day or in the evening. Care Attendants receive basic care training, although their important training will come from the carer they are temporarily replacing. They work flexible hours to provide the assistance when it is most needed.

Crossroads Caring Scotland (Kincardine and Deeside) is under the management of Crossroads Caring Scotland National Office (Glasgow) and offers carers of all client groups the opportunity to have a break from caring for overnight, a weekend or a few days.
