Learning Support Services
A learning disability can be defined as reduced cognitive ability, sometimes accompanied by delayed physical development.
Learning disabilities typically occur before, during or shortly after birth as a result of birth complications, trauma, early childhood illnesses or certain lifelong conditions.
It is estimated that approximately 1% of the UK population has autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and 1 in every 1000 has Down’s syndrome. Many of these individuals will also have a learning disability.
Learning disabilities typically fall into three categories: mild, moderate and severe.
Performing household tasks, communicating, socialising and managing money are common issues faced by individuals with a learning disability.
However, with the right support, these individuals can lead fulfilling and independent lives.
Our Home Care Services
Full Needs Assessment
Here at Cavell Healthcare, the focus of our Learning Support Service is on overcoming challenges and enriching lives.
We work hand-in-hand with our clients and their loved ones to fully get to know you and understand your individual requirements, what challenges you face and which areas of your life you might need help with, in order for us to identify how best support you.
We then create a tailored care plan which has been designed to perfectly meet your individual needs.
Support To Suit Your Needs
By getting to know you and your unique needs, we can then tailor your care plan to provide as little or as much support as you require.
Someone with a mild learning disability may only require our support at set times during the day, whereas someone with a severe or profound learning disability may require a full-time live-in carer.
Whatever your circumstances, our award-winning team are on hand to support you. We do not just support people in the home, but with outside activities too such as going shopping, attending medical appointments, visiting places of interest or accessing hobbies, which helps the individual maintain their dignity and independence.
We would be pleased to discuss your individual needs, so please get in touch by calling 01603 340 044 / 01502 447 660 and we will explain the next steps.
