Specialist support for children with physical and learning disabilities

Transforming the lives of young people and their families

At Abbots Care, we offer home care for children with additional needs, as well as support  in the community. 

With specialist training in caring for children with physical and learning disabilities, our team of energetic and compassionate care workers will ensure that your child gets the best level of tailored support.

Every child, and every family, is different. So we take the time to understand each child’s individual needs to support them in achieving their personal goals.

What our home care services for children include

We tailor our care plans to each unique child in our care. Some of the things we can help children and families with include:

  • Support with the transition to independent living
  • Personal care and medication management 
  • Companionship and help with socialising in the community
  • Support on short breaks
  • Support with activities in the community, such as swimming or going to the cinema
  • Respite care for parents and guardians

We encourage the children and young people we care for to be as active as possible, and can use creative approaches to help them access opportunities they didn’t think possible.

Ensuring the best possible care is provided

“Abbots Care has been providing care in our home for my son with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy since September 2019. They are an amazing, dedicated team of Care Workers, taking time to get to know the family to ensure the best possible care is provided. They are professional in the care they provide while supporting my son emotionally and promoting independence during his teenage years. I would highly recommend Abbots Care to anyone needing care and support.”

Working together to provide holistic home care for children

As a care provider, we always ensure that we communicate and interact regularly with the whole circle of care, including family members and case managers. By working together, we deliver the very best for the children in our care.

In particular, we build close relationships with you, the parents or guardians, who know your children better than anyone. We keep the communication open and listen to your needs, fears and worries, so that we can always offer the right support for your child.

Fully DBS checked Care Workers

Inviting someone into your home to care for your child involves an enormous amount of faith and trust. So it’s vital that you have full peace of mind, and that you’re satisfied with our care workers’ credentials. 

It goes without saying that at Abbots Care, all of our Care Workers undergo DBS checks, to safeguard your child’s safety and wellbeing. We are always happy to talk to you about our home care experience and how we support children with additional needs.



“Your Care Worker works extremely well with my son and has built up an excellent relationship, your Care Worker inspires my son to complete activities.”
