We are committed to providing personalised and professional care to people in a way that allows them to enjoy their independence as long as possible. One way that we do this is by providing support to people with learning disabilities.
We understand the challenges faced by people in the UK who are living with a learning disability. Daily life can be affected in several ways, so much so that family is often relied on for extra support. Our homecare services are here to provide an extra hand and empower people who experience learning disabilities to live a full, rich and independent life.
If you or a loved one are interested in receiving home care in Chigwell, Buckhurst Hill, Redbridge Havering, and Dagenham, this blog is for you. Read on to discover how our compassionate carers can support people with learning disabilities.
Living with a learning disability
Living with a learning disability comes with its own set of challenges, each unique to the individual. Disabilities can vary from mild to moderate to complex and can affect relationships, communication, learning, social skills and behaviour. They may also be linked to physical or emotional difficulties which can impact a person’s ability to live independently at home. This often means that family members are relied on to provide extra support which can, at times, feel overwhelming. For example, you may worry about your loved one’s health, safety and wellbeing when you aren’t there or perhaps you feel guilty about taking a vacation to look after yourself. That’s where we come in.
An extra pair of hands when you need it
Extra support can make a huge difference in empowering independence and improving the self-esteem of people living with learning disabilities. Our compassionate carers can provide both emotional and practical help to support the range of aspects associated with a person’s unique disability. From offering companionship to preparing nutritious meals and providing personal care, our carers are committed to helping people live well in the comfort of their homes. Our goal is to help nurture a person’s independence, help them discover new hobbies and follow their dreams. Whether we’re meeting a person at the bus stop to accompany them home, going to appointments together, or spending time together discovering something new, we’re here to help you live a fulfilled life.
Support for families too
Just like everyone else, people with learning disabilities deserve to live a full life, with as much choice and independence as possible. Our care is focused on providing hands-on support that encourages and empowers a person in the home and beyond. However, we also understand the challenges that can be experienced by family members. Our carers can support families too by stepping in to support your loved one so that you have time off to look after yourself, rest and recharge. We recognise that looking after a loved one with a disability can be difficult, and it’s important that you take the time to recharge your batteries so that you can continue providing high-quality care upon your return.
