Living with Down Syndrome can be challenging, with many children receiving care and support from their parents and social care professionals. However when it comes to adults living with Down Syndrome, everyday tasks can become difficult without additional help. This is particularly true if the individual has decided to live on their own.
IP Homecare offers support for adults living with Down Syndrome. Our carers for Down Syndrome have the skills, the patience and, crucially, the time to get to know those they care for to be able to deliver tailored and personalised care.
Down Syndrome care tailored to you
Every parent worries about how their children will cope when they are gone, but this is of particular concern if your child is living with Down Syndrome, as they will lose what is often their primary source of support. But there are many Down Syndrome care options available to those who are looking to leave their family home.
When it comes to living arrangements, some will prefer to claim a place within a housing association. Others, however, may feel ready to move out independently and join the wider community. Although this route can be extremely liberating and enriching, adjusting to a new lifestyle can be challenging for all parties, so at this stage those caring for someone with Down Syndrome will often enquire about supported living.
