Week 2 of Cura-Care campaign highlights our work with people who have a Learning Disability (LD).
Mencap have a clear definition of what it means to be diagnosed with a Learning Disability, they say that
”A learning disability is a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for example household tasks, socialising or managing money – which affects someone for their whole life.
People with a learning disability tend to take longer to learn and may need support to develop new skills, understand complicated information and interact with other people”
Cura-Care support people who live with a range of conditions which affect their ability to learn & manage everyday tasks. Our team are patient, caring and work alongside other professionals to ensure that each care plan is uniquely created to bring out the best in people, and work in ways to suit their needs.
