Live-in Care

Abbey Home Care provides flexibility when a Client needs a Care Assistant around the house at various times of day or night to assist or carry out varying tasks. No two days need be the same and our Clients can, if they wish, choose a different agenda each day. The daily tasks of everyday living can be fulfilled by the Care Assistant but he/she can also help with pastimes and activities if required.

Abbey Home Care ensure that our Care Assistants are trained to be active when required but also to be as unobtrusive and retiring when their presence is not needed. In that way, our Clients can relax and enjoy the comforts of their own home, knowing that their personal space is respected.
