Services and Prices

Viva Independent Living provide these services in Edinburgh and the Lothians, and we also now cover the Borders and North Northumberland.

Standard Service

Our standard service consists of a 2 hour appointment. If there is a specific task which we have been asked to help with and this lasts for less than 2 hours we will still stay for the full 2 hours (unless you wish otherwise) even if it’s only for a chat over a cup of tea.  If the task unexpectedly takes more than the planned 2 hours, don’t worry we will see it through (and there won’t be an extra charge).

Within our normal working hours we charge £40 for a two hour appointment.  Payments may be made by bank transfer (or debit card).

Extended Service

We recognise that some things will take more than 2 hours and we are delighted to help over longer periods.  After the first 2 hours the charge is £7.50 for each additional half hour which you need.  Please feel free to discuss your exact requirements with us – we will find a way to help.

Telephone Service

If you would like a call at a pre-arranged time every week or every day just to make sure you are ok then we can easily do that – and if we don’t get an answer we can alert a person specified by you.

This service costs £5 per call.
