About Us

“TayCare at Home provides quality care and support services to older people in their own homes, in ways they prefer and are comfortable with”.

TayCare at Home was founded and is operated by Jill Buchan. Working within older people’s services and social care, Jill felt there was a way to deliver better care at home for those older people who needed it. Her vision is a service that provides homecare services to the elderly that people in Dundee and the surrounding areas truly want, in whichever way suits them best.  Our clients will get the same care and support from us that we would want for family or friends.

Jill has years of experience of managing within the public and private sectors of health and social care. A member of the Institute of Leadership & Management, on a day-to-day basis Jill is responsible for the business management and development of TayCare. However, her most important driver is how well we are doing for our clients, so don’t be surprised at times to see her on the front line or to receive a telephone call directly from her or even a visit for a quick chat and a cup of tea!

Valerie Colgan is the Service Manager of TayCare at Home and is responsible for the day-to-day operation of our care and support services. Val has years of experience in health and care and is a registered nurse. Val has a deep commitment to quality care, client satisfaction and development of staff. Val operates a “virtual open door” policy, which means that anyone can contact her at any time, for any reason, whether client or staff, through the main office or by telephone, email, website or even social media!

Our care and support staff have a good mix of experience, skills and knowledge. All are trained and supported to provide the care services necessary to ensure we can continue to add to the quality of life of each and every client we serve. Each member of staff goes through a careful process of safe and robust recruitment that includes a requirement to become a member of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG). You can trust that your care will be provided by professional careworkers who are passionate about what they do.

As a homecare service, TayCare is regulated by Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland (SCSWIS, or “the Care Inspectorate”). Our care staff also work to the regulatory codes of practice set out by the Scottish Social Services Council(SSSC).
