Learning Disability

Westminster Homecare has been providing support to people with learning disabilities since 1995, and whether supporting you in your own home or in supported accommodation, we recognise that everyone’s support needs are different. It is our ethos to understand an individual’s strengths and abilities and adapt our service accordingly, providing enabling support that develops independence and promotes involvement in day-to-day activities.

We have specialist teams for learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental-ill health; their expertise and experience is available across all of our services. We have considerable experience of supporting individuals with:

  • Complex needs
  • Challenging behaviour
  • Dual diagnosis
  • Drug and alcohol dependency
  • Family support

 

We also have experience in supporting individuals with greater abilities, who may only require a few hours support per week.

With a long standing reputation for delivering and providing expert services, Westminster Homecare is fully involved in advocating and championing rights for people with learning disabilities. Our care practitioners are highly trained and have an extensive knowledge of many different areas of learning disability. These include: behaviours that challenge; autistic spectrum disorders; complex health needs; communication difficulties; sensory impairment.

Recognising the above, we work in partnership with our specialist learning disability branch in Cambridgeshire called ILN East. Click here for more information – www.iln-east.co.uk
