Able Community Care Limited
-Provisionally Approved Home Care Provider-
Able Community Care Ltd
Able Community Care was established in 1980 to provide Live-in Care Services for people who had high dependency care needs. Since that time, we have provided in excess of 70 million hours of care and enabled thousands of older and disabled people to remain living in their own home.
A Live-in Care Package from Able Community Care offers a comprehensive service of arranging an individual’s care with our objective to find for each person we care for, a rotational system of Live-in Carers chosen by our clients/family/ or advocate.
Our care packages begin with an enquiry, a personal meeting at our cost when we evaluate your care requirements and assess whether we can offer the care which is needed. Upon receipt of your personal care plan we will organise your individual care package and monitor the care provided as detailed in this care plan. You will be able to change or adjust your care plan at any time. A risk assessment based around your care package will, like your care plan, be monitored and updated annually or earlier if your circumstances change.
Our 24/7 care provision also offers the opportunity for care support whilst on a holiday. Our Holiday Care Companion Service can accompany you to any international location or within the UK.
Our Home from Hospital Service provides ‘old style’ convalescent care, helping a person to recover independence in their own home.
Many family members care for a loved one, but also need regular breaks from offering their support. At such time, we can provide a Live-in Care service under our Planned Respite Care package.
Our client base provides care from young adults to centenarians and our clients have a wide range of care and health needs.
