When daily visits aren’t enough, our Live-in care service allows you to be well looked after in familiar surroundings. Having your carer on hand gives reassurance and peace of mind to you and your loved ones. 

We want you to be able to keep up your favourite daily routines, live with your pet or stay with your family for as long as possible, which is why the Live-in care we provide covers a wide range of needs, from companionship to palliative care.

Neurological care

Anyone can have a neurological condition at any time. Some, like cerebral palsy, are present from birth. Others, such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and Parkinson’s disease, can develop at any stage in life. Many neurological conditions, such as having a stroke, cause long term disability and can affect a person’s ability to live independently and can affect communication, behaviour and mental health. At Abicare, our focus is to help people live their life to the best of their ability while focusing on health and wellbeing.

Dementia Care

Living with dementia can have a huge emotional, social and psychological impact on the person with dementia, and the people around them. Many people with dementia describe these impacts as a series of losses, and adjusting to them can be challenging. Having dementia may lead to the loss of self-esteem, social independence and relationships, and the ability to carry out their favourite activities. By having a Live-in carer, you and your family members can have peace of mind and feel reassured that you are receiving the best care possible from one of our Dementia specialist carers.

Palliative Care

At Abicare we understand how distressing it can be to have a terminal illness, and the emotional impact that it has not only on yourself, but also on your family and friends. 

Our carers are trained to care for clients who require long-term or short-term palliative care, and there are many options for palliative care at home to ensure that you retain your independence for as long as possible.

We will work with you and your family to create a care plan that is tailored to your needs and requirements, which can be amended at any point to reflect any changes in your condition.

Our end of life care team is fully trained to provide the very best support with your preferences and wishes at the forefront of your care plan. 

Palliative care provides you with an alternative option to going into a hospice and allows you to stay at home surrounded by your possessions and treasured memories.

Bariatric Care

We can provide home care support to anyone recovering from bariatric surgery. Many of the challenges faced by people with obesity can impact both physical and mental wellbeing. That’s why we also offer person-centered home care support for any related mental health issues, such as low self-esteem or depression.

We understand that recovering from Bariatric surgery can be a long and painful process, which is why our carers are fully trained to ensure that recovery from bariatric surgery is handled with dignity, respect and comfort.

Care for Disabled/Physically impaired

For those who are disabled or physically impaired, adapting to independent life may pose unexpected struggles. 

We provide help for people of all ages with physical impairments. From visiting care that helps with daily tasks to Live-in care for disabled adults, our disability home care support is designed to work alongside your care support network, so that you can achieve your goals

Learning Disabilities

We understand that learning disabilities range from a mild learning disability to a severe mental incapacity, which is why we have fully trained carers who are experienced in providing care to clients with learning disabilities.

People with learning disabilities can often find it hard to navigate everyday life, but having a Live-in carer can help someone with learning difficulties to achieve their potential, whilst remaining in their own home.

Convalescent Care

Convalescent care is provided when a patient is discharged from hospital to finish recovering at home. In some cases, a district nurse will provide visits once or twice a day to ensure the patient is recovering well, but often this is not enough. At Abicare we provide full time Live-in convalescent care. Our carers will help with domestic duties around the home as well as providing companionship during the early days of recovery.  

Respite/Holiday Care

Respite care is often known as short term care, giving your current carer a short term break or holiday cover. If you already have a Live-in carer, a respite carer will relieve your usual carer every 3 or 4 weeks, so they are able to take time off. 

If you are a full-time carer to a family member, a respite carer may be brought in to provide full-time care, so that you can go on holiday or provide cover if you are unable to care for your family member for a short period of time. 

Companionship Care

With our live-in companionship service you can spend as little or as much one-on-one time as you would like with your carer, giving you the opportunity to take part in activities and interests of your choice. This could be something as simple as playing a game of cards, dominoes, a board game, or being read to. Or perhaps you’d just like to have a good old natter with your carer about the things that interest you most/are important to you.
