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 are having to change some of the ways we currently work.

 At present, until further notice, 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 Care And Repair Officers, dealing with grant approvals work for major adaptations, will be working from home and will continue to assist and support clients by phone and online, but will not be carrying out any new home visits until further notice.

 Our Oban office staff will be working remotely until further notice but can still be contacted on 01631 567780 or on at any time 09.00 till 17.00, Mon to Fri.

 Care and Repair staff will be trying to support our health and social care partners and community efforts in any way we can throughout this developing situation. Please feel free to contact us to discuss anything you feel we may be able to assist you with.

In the meantime, stay safe and well,

 Steven Clarkson,
