People with learning disabilities are all different. They have a diverse range of difficulties that present to lesser or greater degrees. At Mumby’s we understand adults with learning disabilities and we care for them so they can live the life they want.
Our Learning Disability Live-in Care
An adult with learning disabilities can have problems with understanding complex information, learning new skills, coping independently, looking after themselves and integrating into society. The term learning disabilities encompasses many conditions including familiar disorders such as autism and Down’s syndrome.
Mumby’s carers are fully trained and experienced to provide the highest quality of support and care to people with all types of learning disabilities.
Our live-in care support is tailored around the strengths, abilities, personal interests and life aspirations of the person with learning disabilities. A Mumby’s live-in carer provides the care they need to live a full and independent life in the comfort of their own home rather than in an institution or in group housing.
Live-in home carers are available 24 hours, 7 days a week and as a result, they can offer help and care whenever it is needed. We know that many people with learning disabilities do not like change. Live-in care supports them by offering a reliable and constant companion who assists in the routines that they enjoy. Our carers and clients often develop a great friendship.
