May experience feelings of frustration and have challenging behaviour because of this.
The individual with Learning Disabilities may have feelings of depression is common because of the individual feeling inadequate because they may not be able to pick up and retain information/ tasks as well as other.
FAMILY AND FRIENDS:
May experience feelings of frustration that the individual cannot learn what seems to be a “Simple routine”. This can result in the loved ones of the individual with Learning Disabilities feeling guilty and sometimes depressed with their reactions to the individual.
Some parents blame themselves for how the individual developed a learning disability and can become depressed and withdrawn from society because of this.
CARE AND OTHER HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS:
May unknowingly be giving institutionalised Care to the individual. This can happen when an individual is not included within the process of their Care. Some carer’s have fallen into institutionalised care by Caring for the individual in the way that they feel to be correct and not involving the individual within how they would like to be Cared for and what they would like to do.
Some Carer’s and other health care professionals find it difficult to interact correctly with people with learning disabilities and do not fully understand how to effectively communicate with them.
HOW WE CAN HELP…
Our CDCA Management and Care Team have our collective experience and knowledge on Caring for those with Learning Disabilities. this ensures that they are delivering the best quality of Care for you or your loved one.
Care plans will be put in place with our Management Team, the individual whom we are providing Care for and the loved ones around the individual to ensure that the best quality of Care is given. Care plans will be assessed and updated regularly to ensure that the individual is getting the correct Care at the correct time. We understand that everyone with a Learning Disability is first and foremost, an individual. They have individual wants, likes, dislikes and needs. We do not treat the people we Care for as the Condition that they have, but more so as the individual who just so happens to have a condition.
All of our staff have regular Training, ensuring that our CDCA Team Members have effective communication skills and the correct knowledge for providing the best quality service that you and your loved ones deserve.
We understand that sometimes the individual with a Learning Disability may have challenging behaviour or have frustrating behaviour. Our Carer’s understand that the individual does have a condition and that it is at no fault of their own that they may display challenging behaviour. We do not take things personally. Everyone is an individual and should be Cared for in individualistic manner.
