Able Community Care began offering Live-in Care in Manchester to older and disabled people in 1980 and since that date has provided more than 70 million hours of care.
Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county with a population of just under three million. In 2016 the percentage of people over the age of 65 years was 9.4% and rising. Figures in the 2011 Census gave the number of disabled people in Greater Manchester as 19%.
Quentin is one of the clients we support in the area. In his late forties he was diagnosed as having MS. Wanting to stay in his familiar home but needing support 24/7 Quentin decided to try a Live-In Care Package. His decision was a success and we have been supporting Quentin in his own home in conjunction with his other care professionals for nine years.
Bella is now 86 and physically frail. With no close-by family support but with their agreement, in 2017 a Live-in Care Package was trialed and has been continuous since the first day a care worker was introduced into Bella’s home.
Like Quentin, Bella has a regular, rotational system of care workers who are liked and provide domestic support, personal care support and provide companionship.
For many people, the opportunity to have someone with them enables them to pick up the social aspects of their life again. On a nice day, a trip out to a cafe or a garden centre, on a Sunday perhaps to attend church, any afternoon the opportunity to have a friend round with someone else to bake the cake and make the tea.
All our Live-in Carers have a minimum of one year’s professional experience in the care sector and all have an up to date DBS (formerly Criminal Record Check). Unlike many care agencies we personally interview all potential carers, face to face (No Skype, FaceTime or telephone interview sessions). We write for our own references and verify them upon return. Live-in Care Workers on our Register regularly update their care training certification and many of our Carers have been with us more than ten years.
Able Community Care is a family owned company and has been in the same family for 38 years.
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 can accompany those who need care on holidays of their choice.
