Choosing a care support service for a family member or friend has always been difficult. Advice has been to get all the information you can and then make a decision based on this knowledge. In these difficult Covid-19 times making a care decision has and will become increasingly difficult. Media reports of the spread of the virus to care homes have for many people significantly reduced the choice of care support and home care is considered the most viable and safe option. One organisation representing home care providers forecasts that many home care businesses may fail. For a person with high dependency care needs where support for many hours a week is needed hourly care support can run into thousands of pounds each week.
Also, out of necessity, the care may be provided by many different care workers. Another option is to have a Live-in Care Service, where a professional* carer will move into a person’s home to offer care support encompassing domestic, personal, and social care assistance. Such support ensures that relatives can be confident that their loved one is not only cared for but is not alone. Live-in Care has been provided by Able Community Care since 1980 and to date, we have enabled thousands of people to remain safe and cared for in their own home.
The cost of a Live-in Care Package from Able Community Care can be a third of the cost of having hourly care support.
