Supporting the independence of adults and children with physical disabilities, we work in partnership with other organisations to provide a range of services to support adults with physical disabilities, along with the people who provide care for them.
We aim to help those who use our services to live a fulfilling, independent life in their community.
We have teams of social workers and Community Occupational Therapists who can/will assess your needs. Depending on your needs, we can help with things like:
- Provision of equipment, that will help with every day tasks;
- Home care which provides personal care and assistance with independent living;
- Support from our Re-ablement team to help you to return home safely following a stay in hospital or to learn or relearn basic living skills;
- Providing disabled car badges, to help with parking;
- Meals on Wheels which is available to people who would find it difficult to make themselves a cooked lunch;
- Lifeline, an alarm system that can provide the necessary support or help at the touch of a button;
- The Telecare service that uses electronic monitors to ensure that service users are safe in their own home environment;
- Providing advice about moving into a care home or special needs housing if the problems of living at home are too difficult to overcome.
