For many people the reality of living in a very rural community is idyllic and a chosen way of life. The landscape, the peace, smaller communities and the slower pace of everyday living outweighs problems that might be around local transport services, choice of amenities, shops and health services.
It is not until the problems of getting older become apparent that the difficulties in accessing services that help a person to stay independent become more than just an inconvenience.
It is a fact that the most difficult areas to deliver health and social care, whether it is from the statutory or voluntary sector, is to rural and remote areas.
In addition it is also acknowledged that the health and social care services that a person would like are not always available so a care match of choice is not always a reality.
The challenge of delivering appropriate services to an older person wishing to stay in their own home can be addressed by considering having a live-in care scheme in an older person’s home.
Live-in care schemes provide support to a person in their own home by offering domestic, personal and social care assistance. Each individual has their own care plan to ensure that they are able to continue to live in their own home in the way in which they wish to live. Their way of life respected and facilitated.
Able Community Care is able to provide live-in care schemes in The Channel Islands, The Isle of Wight, The Isle of Man, Anglesey and in the islands of Scotland including the Inner Hebrides and Outer Hebrides, the Shetland Isles and The Orkneys.
