It is estimated that in England in 2011 there were 1.2m people living with a learning disability. This includes:
* 905,000 adults aged 18+ (530,000 men and 375,000 women)*
Adults with learning disabilities were most commonly reported by Local Authorities to be living permanently with family or friends*.
At Home Instead we understand it can be challenging caring for someone with a learning disability and we offer a wide range of services tailored to meet the needs of the client and to provide family and friends with a well deserved break.
Home Instead is one of the UK’s most trusted providers of home care. Our services are flexible and are designed to meet the needs of people with a learning disability. Our non-medical support is tailored to the needs of each client and enables our clients to develop their skills, maintain their independence and increase their self-confidence.
All of our clients have a Care Plan which accounts for their needs and wishes. Our person-centred care approach means that each client is respected as an individual and is treated with the dignity they deserve. This service is delivered by a team of dedicated and trained CAREGivers who are committed to promoting independence, choice and equality for their clients.
Central to the way the Home Instead team works is the belief that clients and CAREGivers should be matched so that they share common interests, in order to facilitate an immediate connection between them. Another example of our unique approach is that clients have, whenever possible, the same CAREGiver for each visit. We understand how important security and stability is for anyone receiving support and particularly for people with learning disabilities.
Our service has also been added to Rochdale's Approved Provider List for learning disability services.
