I don’t think i’d like sharing my life with a stranger

At Abicare, we strive to find the perfect match between our carers and clients as we know how personal it is. Your carer will have as much involvement in your life as you want. They are on hand to help you with day to day life, in whatever capacity you need, and if you want someone for companionship as well they are there to keep you company. However, they have their own space and living area, so if you would prefer someone to be more discreet, that’s also fine.
