Norfolk

Able Community Care was founded in Norfolk in 1980 and one of our first clients was an older couple who unless they could find 24-hour home care support would need to leave their home on Unthank Road in Norwich. They had lived in their bungalow for many years and they and their family wanted to find a solution to enable them to stay in their home rather than having to face a move to a residential care setting. The launch of our Live-in Care Service coincided with their problem and we were able to provide the support they needed.

Over 38 years we have provided Live-in Care Services in Norwich and in the many towns and villages such as Cromer, Great Yarmouth, Kings Lynn, Harleston, Thetford, Attleborough, Swaffham, Wells, Kirby Bedon, Letheringsett, Kelling, Hemsby and Hedenham.

Many homes in Norfolk are away from public transport routes and as a result travel can be problematical.  Local carers, carers with transport, clients who have their own vehicles, our knowledge of bus and train routes all help us to plan to ensure that once we provide live-in carers to our Norfolk clients our reliability record in 100%.

In 2004 we were asked to provide a Live-in Care Package for Vivienne. Vivienne has Parkinson’s and was living just outside Norwich in a village that she enjoyed living in, one where she had friends, and which was well served with local shops and transport. The idea of moving to a care home did not appeal and as a result Vivienne decided to try using the support of live-in carers.

Able Community Care has provided Vivienne with a continuous, live-in care package for the last fourteen years. Her regular, rotational, carers, working on a fortnightly changeover basis are known to her and they have supported Vivienne, with the help of other care professionals as her disease has progressed.

Norfolk being a rural County has an abundance of farm shops, accessible restaurants, local grocers, butchers and other services, which to an older person may not be accessible but with the support of our live-in carers, ‘Shop Local’, days out, visiting friends, attending church or chapel are all possible in addition to the personal and domestic care support provided.

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 accompany Norfolk people who need care on holidays of their choice.
