Learning disability

Exemplar Health Care supports individuals with a learning disability to live their lives as they choose. We do this by creating personalised care in a vibrant and positive atmosphere in small, purpose-built homes.

Learning disability

A learning disability is often complex. Some people may have reduced ability to manage everyday activities like household tasks, socialising or managing money.

For others, the learning disability may be part of other physical and emotional conditions and individuals may receive more than one diagnosis. Some people with learning disabilities require specialist nursing care and help to manage medical conditions, such as epilepsy and diabetes. 

Everyone is different so we start by creating a personal plan with each individual which includes their strengths, beliefs and aspirations. From this, we make sure that all the right support and services are in place and aim to support each individual to integrate fully into their local community and live the life of their choice. We can also offer sole occupancy environments for people living with Asperger’s through our OneCare services.

Autism and learning disability care

Sarah lived with learning disabilities, frequent epileptic seizures and challenging behaviour. Sarah displayed many autistic traits and it became clear that her behaviours were closely linked to frequent seizures. With a new GP, neurologist and an epilepsy specialist nurse and the right medication, Sarah’s seizures reduced. Through gentle care, time and patience, the team supported Sarah to become more independent.
