About Live In Care
Studies show that older people or those with disabilities are happier and thrive when they remain living in their own homes. Their spirits are higher, they feel more independent and safer; and familiar surroundings bring them tremendous comfort. Its no wonder most would rather live in their own homes for as long as possible! However, some activities of daily living – such as dressing, bathing, driving and grocery shopping can become more difficult. This is where Live In Care such as Abantu can be of tremendous help. Contact us to discuss your needs so that we can put in place of how best to support you to live at home in familiar surroundings.
Our Name and Philosophy
“Abantu” means “People” in the Zulu and Ndebele languages of Zimbabwe and South Africa. As a Care Agency, we embody the philosophy of Ubuntu – a philosophy that brings people together to provide support but also respects individuality. Loosely translated, Ubuntu means “I am what I am because of who we all are.” This philosophy is central to our understanding that caring for those around us (especially the elderly and those who are most vulnerable) is our highest priority. We are committed to providing competent, compassionate care that is individualised according to the needs of our clients. Our goal is to empower you to live your life to the fullest with the support of whatever care you need.
