Managing Director, Linda Thomson, started thebusiness under the name of Linda Thomson Care Services in September 1997. With over 30 years of experience caring for the elderly and disabled in the Perthshire area, the decision was made that home care was the future.

On 1st September 2005 Linda Thomson Care Services became Care Services (Perth) Ltd and although the name had changed the quality of care did not.

Care Services (Perth) Ltd is now well established and is managed by Susan Thomson and her dedicated close knit team of Home Care Officers and Administrators.

They are Dignity, Privacy, Choice, Realising Potential, Equality and Diversity. Care Services (Perth) Ltd is also an approved Perth & Kinross Approved Provider and works within a selected Core Group who work closely with Perth & Kinross.

Care Services (Perth) Ltd is one of the leading home care providers in the Perth area. Our aim is to enable you as an individual to stay in your own home and live as independently as possible for as long as possible.

Care Services (Perth) Ltd is a company that respects your decision to stay at home. It is very important for you to feel that your well being and dignity are being respected. We do not make any decisions for you, the choices you make will always be your own.

Susan Thomson
Registered Manager

I joined my family’s business, Care Services Perth, 20 years ago as it was expanding. The timing was perfect as I was looking to move into a role that allowed me to use my existing skills and develop into management.

We have a fantastic team of people here who make the business feel like an extension of the family.

There have been many highlights over the years, but one to stand out is winning 2012 Manager of The Year, nominated in recognition from families I support.

I’m a great believer in work/life balance. In my down time I love to keep myself fit and healthy by going to the gym and spending time with my two daughters and close friends.

Elaine Stewart
Supervisor & Coordinator

In 2008 I joined the team looking for a new challenge. Previously, I have worked and different industries and wanted to develop in the sector where I could provide care for people.

I have gained a lot of experience and learnt new skills here, with my favourite part of my work being how rewarding this role is. It is fantastic to see the positive outcomes for people who use our services.

Away from the office, I love to get outside on big walks, go travelling, and watch ice hockey!

Aileen McLeod
Supervisor, Coordinator & Trainer

Working in care already, I made the move to Care Services Perth as I’d heard such positive feedback. The company has a great reputation and I was looking to work with a team who cared about their users and their staff – the same reason I ventured into this sector. It’s been a perfect fit!

I meet so many interesting people from different backgrounds here. No two days are the same.

Since working in this role I’ve become a Moving and Handling Trainer, where I’m responsible for training staff. This part of my work is as rewarding as any other, as I feel proud when they complete training and I see them go onto to use these skills with our users.

In my spare time I like to socialise with my friends and family, and relax at home!

Jane McKenzie
Administration Manager & Recruitment

During Covid I got thinking about what was important in life and, of course, saw so much focus on care and decided I would like to learn more. I was looking for a change of career having worked in recruitment for over 20 years, and wanted to utilise my skills and learn new ones.

At Care Services Perth we are always busy and every day is different! My favourite part is working with such a great team of people.

Away from work I love burlesque dancing, enjoying good food and drink with friends and family, and travelling!
