ComfortCare Learning Disability Services and Supported Living
At ComfortCare, we support and empower individuals with a wide range of learning disabilities. We recognise that people may also have other complex needs which may mean that they require adapted environments or specialist ways of working to provide and support people to have a good and meaningful life.
We tailor unique support packages built on individual choice, which enable both social care and community-led activities embracing all opportunities, whether recreational, educational or work-based. In addition, we also support people with complex health needs ComfortCare supports people with learning disabilities to develop the skills they would like to live as independently as possible and to choose the life they would wish.
How can ComfortCare help?
When it comes to choosing the right support for a person with learning disabilities, the most important thing to remember is that you have the right to make decisions on your own terms. Social services will be there every step of the way to support you, but it is ultimately a decision that you and the people who support you - such as friends and family involved, must be comfortable with.
ComfortCare offers a range of services for people with learning disabilities that you may find helpful. We would be happy to speak to you about specific support packages in further detail when you get in contact with us. The types of services we offer include:
- Supported living
- Residential services
- Respite and day services
- Healthcare at independent hospitals
- Support to access education and further education
- Support access to voluntary and paid work if and when appropriate
We understand that living with a learning disability can make a number of daily tasks and situations more challenging for individuals and their families, but ComfortCare is on hand to offer the support you need for the present and future.
Understanding learning disabilities and individual needs
Everything we do at ComfortCare is determined by the people who use our services, their personal needs and the choices they wish to make. Everyone we support has their own unique Person Centred Plan which is designed to support their personal choices and aspirations, and also focuses on what is required to make this happen.
We know that everyone is unique, and this is no different when it comes to individuals with learning disabilities. That is why we support people to take control of their lives and learn to identify and believe in their own potential. Having a good life with positive outcomes can be a reality for everyone, regardless of their age or presumed ability.
Learning disabilities directly affects around 1.5 million people in the UK, which is why ComfortCare is proud to tailor unique support packages that support people on an individual basis. Some individuals may only have minor needs, whilst others with severe learning disabilities may require extra care services. Living with learning disabilities can be challenging, but there is always support available should you need it.
