The Millport Care Centre offers high quality care for people aged 16 and over with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, challenging behaviour and autism.
Also available is housing support and care at home. They provide both a short break holiday service and specialist care and support. Their services are open for adults with learning disabilities and older adults, either in their own home or in holiday accommodation on the island.
We enable people to maintain lifestyles that are as similar as possible to those they enjoyed before staying with us. We provide a safe and supportive environment which offers access to further education via either attendance at, or outreach from James Watt College. The people we support are also encouraged to take part in a wide variety of social and leisure activities including gym attendance, bowling, walking, photography, cooking, arts and crafts, cycling, fishing, swimming, cinema, theatre and alternative therapies. Themed events are organised around Easter Weekend, Sail and Oar Weekend, Country and Western Festival, September Weekend and other special occasions such as St Patrick’s Day, St Andrew’s Day and Burns Night. Options for work experience are currently offered via the care centre, Garrison Café and Age Concern Shop. A team of experienced catering staff are responsible for the preparation and serving of meals and snacks. Mealtimes are flexible and a choice of menu is available. Our in–house kitchens prepare fresh, nutritious food and are always happy to provide for individual dietary requirements and preferences. People are encouraged to influence and develop menu choices and a nutritional focus group meets quarterly to redesign menus.
