The term physical disability is used to cover a wide range of conditions, including neurological conditions. We care for both congenital and acquired disabilities. Individuals are affected by physical disabilities in different ways. Some people may have to adjust to a reduced physical ability to manage everyday activities. For others, it may be reduced intellectual or cognitive ability.
At Exemplar we support people with physical disabilities to live life to the full. We offer a variety of services including physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, seating assessments, long-term placements, occupational therapy. We also offer short term placements and rehabilitation programmes.
We believe the best care is given in a positive and supportive environment which celebrates success. Friends and family are encouraged to visit and be part of the service users care and support team.
Conditions we care for include:
- Huntington's disease
- Parkinson's disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Motor neurone disease
- Acquired brain injury
- Spinal injury
- Sensory impairment
- High dependency care
- Ventilatory care
The right people. The right environment. We know that to help people with physical disabilities reach their full potential they need the best facilities and support.
Our multi-skilled team of Registered Nurses, including those specially trained in general nursing, mental health and learning disabilities accommodate the complex needs of our service users.
When it comes to severe brain injury, we follow the SMART approach (Sensory Modality Assesment Rehabilitation Techniques). This is a well proven clinical tool used for the assessment and rehabilitation of people with disorders of consciousness following a severe head injury.
