Bella is an adult with Parkinson’s Disease and came to Able Community Care in May 2008. Bella has two main carers, Live-in Carer 1 joined her in June 08 and Live-in Carer 2 joined the rota in January 2011. Domestic, personal and social care is provided.
Beverley is in her early 60’s and has Parkinson’s disease. Wheelchair dependent she requires help with all domestic and personal care. Social activity is also important and her live-in carers enable her to continue going to the theatre and local places and events of interest. Beverley’s current main rota of carers is filled by one live-in carer who first went to Beverley’s home in June 2008 and by her second live-in carer who was introduced to Beverley in January 2011.
Norman is 89 years of age and living in a small, rural town. After being discharged from hospital he and his family decided a live-in carer scheme could support him in his own home allowing him to continue his many hobbies and provide a safe, supportive care system. Norman has two regular live-in carers who were both introduced into his home in April 2013.
Three years ago Able Community Care was approached by a family whose Mother needed care due to Parkinson's Disease. They had their own employed live-in care worker but wanted to know if we could provide holiday cover. Since this approach we have provided live-in holiday cover six times, the same care worker from Able Community Care has covered all six postings.
