Person-centred support for people with physical and learning disabilities 

Towards a more fulfilling and independent life

At Abbots Care, we support people with physical and learning disabilities to live the life they want, the way they want to. Our experienced Care Workers can provide disability care at home.

We provide professional care to people of all ages with a range of disabilities and conditions, including autism, epilepsy, cerebral palsy and MS. (See also our page on home care for children with additional needs).

Our care services encourage each individual to express their preferences, make choices and advocate for themselves, promoting a more fulfilling life. We prioritise encouraging independence through home care.

Our CQC Outstanding rated Hertfordshire Care Workers offer both visiting care and live-in care services to suit your needs.

Begin Care

We will work with you and your family to create a person-centred care plan, which is reviewed regularly when your care begins.

A person-centred approach to disability care

Everyone is different, and our approach to care working reflects that.

Our person-centred disability care services are tailored to each individual person in our care. We take the time to listen to your needs and wants, and develop a care and support plan that reflects these. Our care plan will support you or your loved one to achieve your personal goals, whatever these may be.

Our disability care at home and in the community can include:

  • Personal care
  • Support in the community
  • Medication management
  • Companionship and well-being support
  • Respite care services
  • Support with employment

We encourage people to be as active as possible and our experienced support workers use creative approaches to help our Clients access new opportunities and fulfil their personal goals.

Developing and supporting life skills for people with learning disabilities

Our professionally trained Care Workers are experienced at caring for people with learning disabilities. We work closely with family members and support networks to ensure consistency in care. 

We don’t want to take over where people can be supported to do things themselves, so our home care services for people with learning disabilities can include help and encouragement with daily living skills. We focus on empowering people to carry out tasks like personal hygiene routines and household chores independently where possible.

We provide physical and learning disability care at home and also in the community, supporting individuals with learning disabilities to access education, employment and recreational activities.

It’s really important for us to communicate well with the people we care for, and understand what they need from us. So we can help individuals with learning disabilities to express their needs, wants, and opinions through ways they can express themselves best.

Home care support for people with physical disabilities and mobility needs

At Abbots Care, we offer specialist, tailored support in the home for people with physical disabilities. This can involve providing personal care and support with medication, offering accessible transport and adapting daily tasks for greater independence.

Our Care Workers are specially trained to offer advanced, complex care where needed, supporting people with a range of conditions and disabilities. 

To the best of their ability, we encourage everyone in our care to engage in regular physical activity and get outdoors where possible. This can help to maintain physical fitness, improve balance and reduce the risk of secondary health conditions.

For our visiting care Clients, we always endeavour to schedule the same Care Workers on a regular basis. That way, it’s possible to build up a rewarding long-term relationship.
