Cerebral palsy

Almond Care’s tailored approach to delivering complex care in the home in the UK means that we are ideally placed to provide bespoke support for people with cerebral palsy, a condition that can result in widely varying symptoms and needs.

The age range of people affected by cerebral palsy and the varied symptoms of different cerebral palsy sub-types – including ataxic cerebral palsy, spastic cerebral palsy, athetoid cerebral palsy and mixed cerebral palsy – means that we place great importance on understanding the unique circumstances of the client and how we can tailor their care staff and care plan to their symptoms, needs and wishes.

We select trained and qualified care staff experienced in working with cerebral palsy and who have the skills and experience to deliver the most complex cerebral palsy care. Our carers also receive extensive, client-specific training, enabling them to deliver proactive care designed to help them achieve maximum independence and quality of life.

For example, cerebral palsy can result in swallowing issues and if these create problems with eating and drinking we can support nasogastric feeding and gastrostomy to ensure nutritional need are met.

The needs of cerebral palsy clients vary greatly, so we can provide as much or as little support as required, ranging from personal care and mobility assistance to assistance with household tasks and socialising, to help maintain and maximise the client’s quality of life and independence.
