Assisting someone with a learning disability can be a challenging task that takes relationship building, time, compassion and patience. Having skilled and professional carers to support and assist the individual’s needs can greatly enhance their life and learning outcomes.
Although there are circa 1.5 million UK residents living with some degree of learning disability, we know that each person is an individual with their own needs, hopes and desires. Our person-centred care plans support and enable a person to live in a way that encourages independence, socialisation and the development of life skills. We ensure each person is given the opportunity to live their best life, and always aim to empower and support the individual, providing a safe space to learn and grow.
At Ocean Healthcare, our skilled and professional carers are here to help your loved one thrive, not just survive. We aim to assist each client’s personal journey of growth, building on strengths, respecting and working with each individual’s unique personality and helping them through challenging and often emotional situations with a view to learning at every opportunity.
Our carers play a vital role in an individual’s development, using positive encouragement with a strong sense of self-worth and confidence, which is the key to improved learning outcomes both at home and in the community.
