Why we believe in delivering great care

Abicare wants to create a world with reimagined, better care that empowers people to be more independent within their own homes. It is our aim to give people the best possible care that fits with their lives, helping them to stay in the comfort of their own homes.

I started Abicare to give our clients the best possible care and I really think we do that.

– Anne-Marie Perry. CEO Abicare

Our story

Abicare began with an idea: care could be reinvented to fit better with people’s needs today. CEO and founder Anne-Marie Perry believed in the power of care to change lives and improve the society we live in. But her thirty years of experience in the nursing home and social care sectors meant she could see care providers were not always questioning traditional care models.

In 2006, Anne-Marie founded Abicare. She surrounded herself with a talented team, experienced in care and all with the shared mission that they could change the face of home care in the UK. Since then, Abicare has:

  • Opened five offices across England and Wales.
  • Introduced life-changing technology for the elderly with Abilink, leading to the creation of our intranet.
  • Developed industry-approved and certificated six-day and two-day fast track carer training.
  • Built a community of supported carers who can thrive within their jobs.
  • Achieved a “Good” CQC rating across all offices.
  • Partnered with Relias to offer our carers an impressive range of training courses, including our own Abicare training material, to increase the breadth of learning.

Our employees

Only by having an excellent team can we offer the flexible live-in and visiting care that we do. Abicare believes care is a career and, like teaching or nursing, is often a calling. That’s why, regardless of background or relevant experience, we provide our team with the necessary training, supervision and ongoing support they need to thrive. We don’t just want our colleagues to enjoy their care work, we want them to achieve their full potential – and ours.

Our values

  • We provide the best care we can, with kindness.
  • We help people achieve better independence within their home.
  • We rethink and improve traditional care models.
  • We look after our clients, care users and colleagues.
  • We create and nurture local communities to support vulnerable people.
