Ann’s Case Study

Learning and physical disabilities

Ann had a learning disability but lived fairly independently at home. Recently her family had been concerned that she wasn’t managing as well as she used to. They wanted someone to come to her apartment and help with household tasks and meal preparation.

After an initial assessment with Ann, GoodOaks we were able to understand her general concerns and areas of need. We matched her with Francesca who assisted her with day to day tasks.

After initially having a care professional in to visit once a day. Ann slowly regained her confidence around the home and has since reduced her care visits to twice a week. 

“ GoodOaks have really boosted her confidence and given her the help she needs to remain happy living and independently at home”

What our clients say

Find out more about homecare

Yes, we are able to provide both visiting and live-in care services for people with learning disabilities. Having a live-in care professional on hand day and night to help with the care needs of someone with learning disabilities makes a world of difference, and our live-in care professionals are specially trained to provide dignified and versatile care.

If you need help with daily routines and don’t want to move into a care home, then homecare is the service for you.

People with learning disabilities may need help with recalling information, maintaining self-care, help with planning their daily activities, telling the time and general domestic duties within the home. This can mean that they require a more bespoke and detailed level of care, making the relationship with their carer incredibly important.

Yes, we provide respite care for people who care for individuals with learning disabilities. So, whether you’re a family member or care professional, we can step in to help provide the care they need when you’re not able to.
