Physical Disability

Complex Physical Support Needs

Careline Lifestyles provide residential and nursing care to people who have mild, complex or profound physical disabilities in addition to their learning or neurological disability.

Each person, whatever the level of their disability has a bespoke personal care plan detailing the support required to ensure that they can engage with all aspects of their life as much as possible, while promoting choice, being involved in decision making and fulfilling their goals and aspirations to ensure quality of life.

Each Unit is designed to support individuals who may require intensive nursing care and therefore a qualified Nurse is on shift 24 hours per day supported by a qualified, caring staff team.  Our staff team is comprised of general nurses, learning disability, mental health nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, behaviour specialist and support workers, providing the ideal skills resource to meet the holistic needs of service users with learning disabilities and complex health issues.

We do not focus on impairments  -  A varied range of support is available from our multi disciplinary team, ranging from nursing care to occupational and physiotherapy input.  Our team work with each service user to ensure that strategies are devised and implemented to provide rehabilitation /maintenance of physical functioning and that daily living skills are maintained and where possible improved.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
