Our Stories


All the quotes below are from real people who’ve used our care and support services in Midlothian and Edinburgh over the years. For privacy reasons, we haven’t included the names.

“My mum did not want me to move to my own house. She thought I would be isolated and would not cope. I did not let her come to my person centred plan meeting as I did not have to. My sister came to the meeting instead. My mum now thinks it is amazing how I have coped since I have moved and the new skills I have learned thanks to the staff at St. Joseph’s Services”.

“I can’t see well anymore but still want to go to my lunch club. Staff talked to the RNIB about all the ways I could keep safe and still do what I like to do. I got support to book a local taxi driver I know who helps me get in to the lunch club and picks me up again.”

“I share my flat with my friend and we moved in at Easter Time. I have my own room, bathroom, shower and kitchen. I make my own tea and the support staff help me make my meals. I’m very happy in my new home.”

We also have a number of testimonials people have kindly written about our services.
