Downs Syndrome can be a challenging condition at best, and many children receive support from their parents as well as social carers. However, adults with Downs Syndrome often struggle to live a normal life without additional help. This is particularly true if the individual has decided to live on their own.
Independent People Homecare offers supported living for those with Downs Syndrome. Our live in carers have the skills, the patience and, crucially, the time to guide customers through each day, regardless of what life has in store.
Tailored Home Care for Adults with Downs Syndrome
Every parent worries about how their children will cope after they are gone, but this is of particular concern if one or more of these children have Downs Syndrome, as they will lose what is often their primary source of support. But there are options for those who are looking to leave their family home.
When it comes to living arrangements, some Down’s sufferers will prefer to claim a place within a housing association. Others, however, may feel ready to move out completely 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 carers will often enquire about supported living.
Our live in care services for Downs Syndrome customers will provide care that has been specifically tailored to the individual’s needs. We understand how Down’s syndrome affects a person physically and mentally, and our live in care agency will provide appropriate supportive care whilst also encouraging independence.
Our experienced live in carers can assist with all kinds of everyday tasks. They’re on hand to help with cleaning, cooking, laundry and all of those jobs that can be extra taxing for those with delayed development. However, they’ll also lend priceless social and emotional support that will help the individual improve their communication skills, make more informed choices, and help them truly live their life to the full.
If you’re looking to arrange live in care for a loved one with Downs Syndrome, the first step is to call us to arrange a visit. From here, we’ll be able to provide you with tailored recommendations and put together a long-term care plan. We appreciate that every single one of our customers will require different levels of support, and we factor this in to our care strategy.
