Learning disability support services at Valorum

Learning disabilities cover a range of conditions like dyslexia, ADHD, autism, language development and non-verbal learning difficulties that make it harder for people to learn certain skills like reading, writing, or maths. These difficulties can be caused by differences in how the brain processes information or problems with attention or language. It’s important to recognise these challenges so that people can get the right support and services they need to live a fulfilling life.

At Valorum, we provide nursing, residential care and supported living services for people with learning disabilities through a combination of care and support, activities, educational and vocational programmes.

Our nursing and residential services provide tailored care plans for people who have a learning disability, autism spectrum conditions and complex care needs. Our dedicated nursing services and residential care teams are trained and qualified to assist with personal care and daily activities, fostering independence and wellbeing.

Ongoing assessment and high staffing levels means that we are able to meet each individual’s changing needs as they progress through their care pathway, while ensuring their safety is maintained and their independence supported. Regular review meetings involving the service user, their family/carers and professionals are held to review outcomes, set new goals, and re-assess support levels.

Our teams are specially trained in autism, positive behaviour support and physical intervention – which is about safe management of aggression and restraint reduction.

How we provide specialised care for intellectual disabilities

In our supported living services, staff provide emotional support and reassurance to help service users to maintain their mental health and provide support to help them administer medication or prompting them to self-medicate, helping them to manage their physical health needs, assisting them to attend doctor appointments, health checks, screening etc. Our care teams also support clients with their personal care and in maintaining a clean and safe environment.

The staff support service users to manage their finances and to access the community to undertake activities of interest to each individual. In our supported living services, we are committed to meeting the REACH standards. These standards encompass Respect, Empowerment, Advocacy, Choice, and Hope, reflecting our dedication to providing person-centred care and support. By adhering to the REACH standards, we aim to uphold the dignity and rights of individuals with learning disabilities, empowering them to make choices, advocate for their needs, and foster hope for a fulfilling life.

Supporting families of residents receiving nursing and residential care for learning disabilities

As part of our care package, we ensure family members are involved and advice is available to family members and loved ones who may also want to be involved in the development of individual care plans. We always encourage family members to continue to see residents regularly to maintain that bond and connection.

What educational and vocational programmes are offered in residential care for learning disabilities?
We offer a range of different programmes at Valorum to suit all goals and wishes of those living with learning disabilities. They can range from picking up key life skills, to reading and writing, speech and language therapy, and activities that can work on core skills such as teamwork, empathy and respect.
How do learning disability care homes empower residents to develop independence and life skills?
All our care plans are collaborative efforts, meaning the power is put into a resident’s hands and progress is down to them, providing them with regular goals and achievements to tick off. Through our programmes and recreational activities, we put a real emphasis on independence and developing life skills and, over time, see the change, particularly with how people communicate with other residents on a day-to-day basis.
Are there support groups or social activities for adults with learning disabilities in care homes?
Support groups are a key part of a daily routine for many adults with learning disabilities, providing an outlet to discuss concerns and learn from others. It can be vital in showcasing that they aren’t alone on their journey and that in our care homes and beyond, there are many others also looking to develop their learning and core skills and, in turn, lead a more fulfilling life.
