Learning Disability Care Services
Our learning disability care service provides the opportunity to develop a wide range of life-enhancing skills, by providing ‘proactive support’ working on the basis that we do things with people, not for them. We support people to live as independently as possible in their own homes.
We like to think that there are no limits to the activities in which you can become involved and provide the appropriate level of support to enable you to fulfil your ambitions. We will ensure that your plan is based around you and changes with your needs or preferences.
A team of experienced support workers are available to provide the care that is right for you 24/7 or on an hourly basis to suit your individual needs. All of our staff are trained to a high standard in their role.
We aim to promote user-led personal care, supporting positive outcomes for you and are here to help you to learn everyday living skills, including
- Help with budgeting skills and paying bills for your home
- Choose and prepare meals and snacks
- Support with medication and health appointments
- Keeping your home clean and safe
- Help with the laundry of clothes and bedding
- Help with benefit claims and filling out forms
- Accessing training courses and college
- Maintain links with friends and family
- Advice on health and safety
- Assist with religious and cultural observances
- Social arrangements and accessing the community
