Able Community Care was established by Angela Gifford in September 1980. The objective of the company was to provide long term, live-in, care services in a person’s home as a true alternative to moving into a residential care home.
In 1981 the first long term, live-in care service began and cover was provided without a break in service, by liked, rotational care workers, for over 4 years until the person concerned died in their own home as they had wished to do.
Since then Able Community Care has continued to provide live-in care services throughout Great Britain and the Channel Islands.
Since that time service provision has expanded to provide Home from Hospital Care, Planned Respite Care and Holiday Companion Care.
The company is still owned by Angela Gifford.
Live-in care provides domestic, personal and social care in a person’s own home eliminating the need to move into residential care. For each person we provide care for, we aim to provide a regular rotational system of liked Care Workers enabling a person to feel comfortable, anxiety free and safe in their own home.
Able Community Care runs their own ‘on call’ system we do not subcontract out. Able Community Care will have a Care Manager who is ‘on call’ and should there be a need to contact us during the night, a Care Manager will always be available.
Here is a photograph of Able Community Care's office building, The Old Parish Roooms which is at the end of Whitlingham Lane a couple of miles from Norwich:
Able Carers have been providing live-in care on a nationwide basis since 1980. To date, we have provided over 54 million hours of care. We are regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission.
