About Bright Care

Bright Care are an award-winning, family-run business providing fully managed in-home senior care and companionship services throughout Scotland for families and individuals.

In 2007, Tim and Louise Cocking were arranging support for an elderly relative but found it difficult to gather the right information about the seemingly limited options. They found that there was a ‘one size fits all’ approach to care and wanted to do something to ensure their grandmother had the emotional and practical support she needed. Thus Bright Care was formed.

From one small office in Edinburgh to five branches spread throughout Scotland, Bright Care have gone far in the last ten years and now support almost 350 clients.

To ensure the same level of care is provided at all times, the company employs exceptional people who will stay true to Bright Care’s family ethos, core values and attention to customer service.
