Our Services

Vintage Vibes is a partnership between LifeCare Edinburgh and The Broomhouse Centre. It was launched late in 2015 with part-funding from The Big Lottery towards the first four years. Plans are that it will become sustainable in the long-term.

Vintage Vibes hopes to plug the gap of a city-wide service that offers longer-term benefits to people seeking better connections. It offers:

  • One to one visiting in the home
  • One to one visiting outside the home
  • Hospital visiting
  • Pet visiting/therapy at home/hospice, nursing home
  • Family visiting
  • Friendship pools
