Assisted living for children and young adults

When we think of the term ‘home care’, we tend to confuse it with a nursing home for the elderly, or presume it is only for a select group of people. However, home care is in fact an all-encompassing phrase for a whole host of different services that are offered to a variety of people who need it.

What is assisted living for children and young adults?

Supported living for young adults refers to the care younger people receive, involving all aspects of their personal and professional development. Although this might not be an easy decision, it provides children and young adults with the guidance and structure to reach their full potential. If a young adult is living with mental health issues, or a particular condition such as Cerebral Palsy it might be that assisted living for young people would help make life easier.

How can assisted living help?

Finding the right support for young adults who need specialist care can be difficult. At Cavendish Homecare we are experienced in providing superior private home care which is tailored to your individual needs. We believe that your child or young adult should be at home with their families in their own space.

One of the biggest benefits of choosing personal home care for young people is the flexibility and personalisation it provides. This allows our highly trained team of carers to ensure that every young person has the opportunity to realise their goals and feels supported at every step. Our live-in care service also allows the individual to remain safe and independent in their environment with their family or loved ones. We listen to the individual’s unique needs and develop plans that will support them both physically and emotionally.

We can provide support for young adults in their home (including but not limited to):

  • Spinal Injuries
  • Brain Injury
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Motor Neurone Disease
  • Mental Health Issues
  • Muscular Dystrophies

Our Registered Nurses and Carers are carefully screened and regularly attend training courses ensuring certificates are up-to-date, and most importantly respect family boundaries and adjust to the dynamics of every home.

We can help…

Being a leading provider of bespoke homecare services, we know your needs can change and our services will adapt and change accordingly. Requiring help in the home can be a daunting prospect and we understand the challenges of having a non-family member in your home. Therefore, choosing the right team is imperative. Our services include round-the-clock quality Paediatric Care through to young adults of all ages.
