Physical Disabilities

Physical Impairment

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 aids and equipment, that will help with everyday tasks
  • Home care which provides personal care and assistance with independent living
  • Support from our Reablement 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
