Support is available for people with severe learning disabilities/difficulties.
This can include support to:
Supported living – the person you care for may be able to live on their own in a flat or in a group home with the support they need to maintain a tenancy, manage their money and develop independent living skills.
Shared Lives Scheme – the person you care for may be able to live with a Shared Lives Carer who supports them to develop independent living skills.
If the person you care for has complex needs a residential or nursing care home for people with learning disabilities may be an option.
The Senior Nurse/Learning Disability Coordinator can help make hospital visits easier for you and the person you care for. For more information call 0118 322 8159.
