What We Do

Home Support Service

ABLA started in September 2005, the Home Support Service (SAD), which is a support service for users / clients, in order to respond to their needs and their families.

It is intended for people who, due to illness, disability or other impediments, require, on a temporary or permanent basis, individualized and personalized care that meets their needs.

This service aims to delay or avoid the institutionalization of the individual, as well as to contribute to their well-being, comfort and quality of life within their home and family, always respecting their ways and customs, as well as their individuality and privacy.

Among the various services, we ensure:

  • Hygiene and personal comfort care
  • Household cleaning and small household cleaning
  • Acquisition of food and other articles
  • Confection and Meal Delivery
  • Laundry (washing/ ironing)
  • Collaboration in the provision of health care under the supervision of qualified personnel
  • Contact with the exterior
  • Providing information that facilitates access to community services
  • Follow-up, recreation and socializing
  • Home Consultations of physiotherapy and psychology
  • Our team is made up of qualified professionals in different areas, such as social workers, physiotherapists and direct-acting helpers, who currently provide assistance to more than 30 users/ clients.
