Learning Disability Support
It is estimated that around 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability of some sort, with up to 350,000 of these deemed to have a profound or severe learning disability.
Many people with learning disabilities also have other conditions such as Down’s Syndrome, autism, epilepsy or behaviours that may challenge. Getting the right support is essential as it enables those with a learning disability to lead fulfilled and active lives, regardless of their complexities.
Our Learning Disability Support Services
Learning Disability Support Services are a particular specialism at HFHC Healthcare, given our alliance with our sister organisation, Home From Home Care. Our team of experienced and caring Support Workers can make a real difference to someone’s life – regardless of the severity of their disability. We understand that life for every person living with a learning disability is different; no two people or their needs are the same, so the support we provide reflects this. Through a dedicated support plan that is unique to the person we are supporting, we will be able to help them overcome significant barriers and lead a fulfilling and active life.
The wishes of those we support will always come first as we work with them to help them accomplish their goals and ambitions. We focus on delivering support, not simply care, and have the expertise and desire to work out how can we make things happen safely, rather than saying we can’t do something.
What is Learning Disability Support?
Good learning disability support should help an individual with development, social and communication skills. Care should also include support with any other disabilities the individual may have, regardless of their complexity, to ensure they lead a fulfilling and active life.
Tailored packages are essential as support can range from a few hours a day to 24-hour services, depending on each person’s particular support needs.
