Learning Disability

Working together to support individuals lives as actively and independently as possible.

Ronnie

General Overview

Working together we adopt a partnership, building trust and to develop an individual plan.  Focusing on potential, building confidence and skills to meet the individual’s goals.

We recognise that tailored support will vary according to individual’s needs and reflect this through the support that we offer. This can range form 24/7 support to less frequent engagement.  Working together we support and build the essential everyday skills to live independently.  Providing support to feel secure and fulfilled and strengthen relationships with family, friends and their community.

During lockdown my days changed dramatically, however, my staff team made sure there was lots of sensory equipment, like new sensory lights in my bedroom.

I feel I have come a very long way in the 25 years or so that I have been getting support. I can remember back to when with YOU was Edinvar Community Care – and that goes back a long way!
