Learning disabilities support

Enjoying a life that has purpose and meaning is equally important to us all. People with learning disabilities are no exception.

At Bluebird Care, we provide tailored care for adults with learning disabilities to promote independence and self-direction. We believe everyone should have the chance to live a fulfilling life, that’s why we provide compassionate, one-to- one care that helps individuals thrive.

We never use a one-size-fits-all approach. We recognise that everyone’s condition, circumstances and preferences are going to be different. That’s why we work closely with individuals and their families to create a customised support plan that puts customers, and their needs and goals, at the centre.

Learning Disability Care at Home

Parents, carers and family members of people with learning disabilities can feel overwhelmed caring for their loved ones. If you are unsure of how to navigate your loved one’s condition or require further support and guidance, our Bluebird carers are on-hand to provide personalised and compassionate care.

The Bluebird Care team is not just available for physical support but for emotional and social development too. Our carers will be a friend who will listen to your loved one’s worries and a companion to share their interests with.

Learning disabilities support at home means that individuals can exercise control over their lives and choices in ways that might not be possible if living in structured environments, such as residential care. Supported living for adults with learning disabilities can be more beneficial for an individual’s well-being - where they can remain in a familiar environment and stay close to friends and family.

Get in touch today to find out more about how we can help you and your family, and provide learning disabilities support at home.

What is a Learning Disability?

A learning disability is reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday tasks. The level of support someone needs will depend on the individual. For example, someone with a mild learning disability may only need support with things like socialising in the community or getting a job. However, someone with a severe or profound learning disability may need full-time care.

For the 1.5 million people in the UK who are living with a learning disability, their daily lives are affected in a variety of different ways. Many of them rely on their friends and family for support. But with a dedicated learning disability carer, we make it possible for individuals and their families to navigate living with their condition.

Supported Living for Adults with Learning Disabilities

We want to support our customers and help them live the life they want, where each day can be different and exciting. That’s why we offer a range of learning disabilities support services. A learning disability is always unique to the person, and in every case, we concentrate on people’s gifts and strengths. Our expert carers will provide support with communication, social development and independence.

Our supported living for adults with learning difficulties can be tailored around individual needs and preferences. Our carer services range from popping in once or twice a week to providing 24-hour live-in care. We are here to advocate independence, provide clear and effective communication and empower individuals to reach their goals and give them a sense of achievement.

Below you’ll find just some of the services we provide:

  • Manage your responsibilities - go to work and keep on top of day-to-day living tasks.
  • Keep connected - meet friends and family, go to school, college or clubs, or pursue a favourite hobby.
  • Keep fit and healthy - attend medical appointments, eat well, or go to a fitness centre.
  • Stay independent – help with grocery shopping and pay bills.
  • Maintain your daily routine – assistance with individual morning and evening routines, such as making the bed and brushing teeth.
  • Keep your home clean and tidy – help with domestic chores like washing and ironing.

Our care assistants have practical experience in meeting a wide range of complex care and support needs for people receiving care in the community. They are fully trained to respond to different communication needs, autistic spectrum disorders, physical disabilities, and sensory impairments.
