Orchids Care For Learning Disabilities
The World Health Organisation defines learning disabilities as “a state of arrested or incomplete development of mind.”
This means that somebody with a learning disability will have difficulties understanding, learning and remembering, and these difficulties will have an effect on their ability to interact socially, to communicate with others, to learn new things, and sometimes to undertake physical tasks.
Whether you have just received a diagnosis of a learning disability for your son or daughter at birth or during childhood, or you have started to care for an adult with learning disabilities, you may feel confused and distressed.
You may already care for a person with disability, whether a learning it’s your son or daughter, brother or sister, parent, partner or other relative or friend, our Orchids Care Learning Disabilities Service could help you.
We understand that Family carers of people with learning disabilities are often unique amongst carers. Our Carers are trained to help the person with the learning disability to reach their full potential, as well as help make your life as a carer more manageable.
Our Carers focus is always on remembering that people with learning disabilities are people first.
