Abacare take on more domiciliary care services in Wales
A WELSH care provider has recently (April, 2016) taken on more domiciliary care services in the country.
Abacare has now incorporated the services previously provided by Nightingales Domiciliary Care Ltd.
Peter Angelides, CEO at Abacare, said: “We are thrilled to be taking on services across Brecon and Ystradgynlais in addition to the services that we already provide in the north of the county. The transfer of care has run very smoothly and there have been no issues with the transfer from one provider to another.
“Our senior staff are in the process of visiting all of the new service users and we look forward to welcoming them and their carers to our existing highly trained team.”
Abacare operates a professional Care Management Team that is committed to providing high quality care to individuals in their own homes.
The large team of trained, specialist, care workers provide positive based outcomes and person centred care to people throughout the UK.
Caroline Jones, Commercial Director at Abacare, said: “Many of us live in the county and we are pleased to be able to deliver consistent, high quality services to people in our community.
“Due to the additional services we will be recruiting across Wales and would be thrilled to hear from anyone interested in a career in care. The ideal care worker will be friendly, caring, trustworthy and reliable. Experience is not necessary as full training and support are provided. We also provide excellent rates of pay including travel time and mileage for all calls.
“As well as providing domiciliary care at home to people requiring a number of short visits we also provide live-in care which is an ideal solution for many people and involves a carer living in your home with you, providing companionship and security as well as delivering care.”
People can find out more about Abacare’s services and job opportunities on their website.
Councillor Stephen Hayes, Powys County Council’s Cabinet member for Adult Services, said: “We are pleased that Abacare are joining our existing care providers in the south of Powys. We have been working closely with both Abacare and Nightingales to ensure that the transfer of care and staff has been carried out in a sensitive and timely manner.
“Abacare have been providing care over the past two years in the north of Powys and we are confident that they will be able to deliver a high quality service for the additional service users that they will now support in the south.”
Abacare’s core values, instilled into every staff member, include ‘make us proud’, ‘focus on our service users’ wellbeing’, ‘communicate, listen well and speak with respect’, ‘be passionate, honest, caring and considerate’, ‘recruit and develop the very best’ and ‘lead by example’.
It is a member of the United Kingdom Homecare Association, Ceretas (formerly British Association of Domiciliary Care), The National Homecare Council and The Information Commissioners Office (Data Protection). It is also registered with the Care Social Services Inspectorate Wales.
Abacare was awarded an Investors in People accolade for its staff training and development for the fourth year running.
Investors in People is a national standard, which provides a framework that helps organisations to improve performance and realise objectives through the effective management and development of their staff.
Staff at the care agency were assessed to ensure the organisation met the requirements of the standard.
