Learning Disability Home Care Services

Home care services with independent living support for those with learning disabilities

"People have equal rights as citizens and services for people with learning disabilities should promote inclusion, independence and choice ~ Valuing People (White Paper, 2001)."

People with learning disabilities have the same needs as we all have, in that they want freedom and choice; to live independently, to have self-esteem, to engage socially, and to be able to live as full of a life as possible.

What is a learning disability?

Learning disabilities, although they can be categorised, can vary from person to person; each person is unique. In most cases there may be some reduced intellectual ability or social skills, and in some people, there may also be physical or emotional conditions.

The home care and community services we provide are planned especially for each person, taking into account their individual and unique requirements, no matter what their age or circumstances.

How can Carewatch help?

People with learning disabilities can lead full and rewarding lives, but may need a degree of support with some aspects of daily life. The levels of support will be unique but may include assisting with everyday personal needs, or help with domestic tasks in the home.

We pride ourselves on being advocates for promoting independent living and supporting people with learning disabilities to get the best out of life. We believe that life needs to be about what you can do.

We support people with learning disabilities to develop more fulfilled lives, enabling them to make a positive contribution to their local community.

We can provide:

  • Support with activities for social inclusion
  • Respite care for families with learning disabled children
  • Help at home with light domestic duties
  • Personal home care for assistance with washing and dressing
  • Support with managing bills and medicines
  • Friendship, reassurance, and companionship
  • Support and advice with Direct Payments
  • Support with contributing to, and being part of the community
  • Assistance with taking part in leisure activities
