What is Learning Disability Care?
In Northern Ireland, there are approximately 31,000 adults with learning difficulties. However, this can range from mild to severe cases. Learning disabilities can affect people and their loved ones in a variety of ways. Some may even have to rely on full-time care from either their family, friends or in-home carers.
But, there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to learning disability care. If your loved one has learning disabilities that restrict them from functioning on their own, it might be time to consider in-home carers to assist them throughout the day in a variety of functions.
We don’t just send random in-home carers for our patients. Our caring companions are carefully chosen, depending on the individual and what they are requiring. For adults with learning difficulties, this relationship is key. In some cases, new people may cause discomfort that upset their routine. However, with our in-home carers, we will focus on developing a friendship where they aren’t just their carer. They are their confidant as well.
