Live-in careAble Community CareTypes of Care
Able Community Care first began providing Live-in Care in Cambridge and Cambridgeshire during the 1980s.
Since then we have provided Live-in Care Services to clients who need support as a result of having Alzheimer’s, MS, Cerebral Palsy, Motor Neurone Disease or need care support as a result of getting older.
Our first client was an older lady who as part of her ‘job description’ wanted a car driver so she could visit an elderly friend in a care home in a village several miles away. (Nan had been made to give up driving as a result of declining eyesight).
Our Live-in Care packages are provided by our carers who offer a combination of personal care support, domestic support and social companionship, according to the wishes of the person we care for and their families or advocates.
Having the opportunity to go out, whether it is for shopping or to re-connect with interests once held or having the ability to resume a hobby makes life more enjoyable. Cambridgeshire has a wealth of places to go to re-kindle interests. The National Trust has both properties and gardens to visit, and there are museums such as The Fitzwilliam in Cambridge and The Imperial War Museum in Duxford, Newmarket the home of Racing plus many lovely towns and villages which are wheelchair friendly.
Part of the role of our live-in carers is to cook meals from fresh food and to shop locally where possible. There are many ‘Cambridgeshire’ recipes handed down from generations of families who lived in the County and they may well be asked to cook College Pudding, Lent Pie of Fillet of Pork Dumpling.
It is our objective to provide each person we care for with a rotational system of live-in carers whom they have chosen. Fulfilling the objective means that we provide care for people which runs into many years, always without breaks in service.
In addition to providing our Live-in Care services around the County, we are also able to provide Home from Hospital Care, Respite Care and Holiday Companion Care, where the carer will accompany Cambridgeshire people who need care on holidays of their choice.
