Linda Meiklejohn Retires

Linda Meiklejohn, our Care and Repair Officer for Helensburgh and Lomond retired at the end of December 2018.  Linda had been with Care and Repair for 17 years so her knowledge, skills and experience will be sorely missed, but we wish her a long and well deserved retirement.

George Gall, who has been taking care of major adaptions projects for the Bute and Cowal area will now be taking over Linda’s area.  George is very experienced, resides in Helensburgh and is familiar with local services, OT’s and Council Housing Information Officers.  

There will be some time for George to become familiar with all of Linda’s casework but we hope this will not interrupt or delay the service to our clients in Helensburgh and Lomond area. 

George can be contacted through the Oban office on 01631 567780.

Due to the current coronavirus situation we have had to change some of the ways we work.

At present, our Housing Support Officers will continue to support Occupational Therapy, Telecare and Social Work to install critical and urgent minor aids and adaptations, technology enabled care equipment and safety and security items in vulnerable clients homes.  Our Handyperson small repairs service has also been reintroduced following the relaxing of lockdown measures in July.

Our Care And Repair Officers, dealing with grant approvals work for major adaptations, continue to assist and support clients by phone and online and are also able to carry out client home visits following the relaxation of lockdown measures.

Any visits carried out by our officers will follow our strict protocols and health and safety procedures and you will be fully informed of these prior to any visit taking place.  Our procedures require us to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), maintain social distancing while in your home and following sanitising procedures for handwashing and disposing of PPE used during the visit.

 Our office staff are working remotely, but the Care And Repair Manager and Office Administrator can be contacted on 01631 567780 or on at any time 09.00 till 17.00, Mon to Fri. If you have a specific need, or particular requirement to visit our office then you should contact either one to make an appointment.

Care and Repair staff are trying to support our health and social care partners and community efforts in any way we can throughout the Covid pandemic. Please feel free to contact us to discuss anything you believe may be able to assist you with.

In the meantime, stay safe and well,

 Steven Clarkson,
