Further Details

We provide local, long term services for people who have complex physical and nursing needs along with people who are cognitively impaired and require slow stream rehabilitation.

At Enable Care we believe that rehabilitation doesn't have to be delivered in a clinical or hospital setting a long way from the support of family and loved ones. That's why our vision is to provide unique, purpose built homes throughout the UK where residents have the support of expert staff to continue with their rehabilitation but still close to their families & friends.

Our aim is to enable our residents to get as much out of each and every day as possible. Our staff are empowered to provide personalised / individualised care to everyone. The mix of clinical and care staff ensures that we can manage a range of residents' requirements; from the most complex of nursing needs to support with daily living tasks. At all times, we endeavour to promote the highest level of independence for each individual & to ensure that they maintain any gains they have previously made in rehabilitation.
