Tailored care

We also support Deaf people, including those with a wide range of additional needs or disabilities, to live independently and avoid isolation. Most deafblind people will still have some hearing or vision. The level of care and support they need will depend on the severity of their hearing and vision problems.

We have a dedicated team fluent in BSL that can conduct the initial assessment in sign language enabling us to create a tailored care plan according to your needs, carefully selecting the right carer for the job.

How we can help you?

Many of our support workers are Deaf BSL users themselves and therefore serve as role models for the clients they support, making our service unique.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a permanent disorder that affects normal movement in various areas of the body. It can be caused by a number of things, including a birth injury, which affects healthy development of the brain.

Living with one of the many types of cerebral palsy still means that you or your loved one can live independently, comfortably and in the way you want to. With cerebral palsy care at home, we provide day-to-day support so you can keep your independence.

By choosing Sam2Sam Deaf Care Service Ltd, we create a bespoke care plan completely based upon your needs and requirements. We like to match you with a carer who has the same interests, likes and dislikes. Our cerebral palsy support workers are assisting people every day to live the lives they want, whether that’s supporting them at home, at work, through study, on holiday or through active social lives.

Respiratory Conditions

Caring for someone who suffers from respiratory conditions is a huge responsibility and requires the support of healthcare professionals to ensure the service user receives the relevant treatment as and when required.

According to the NHS, as many as one in five people are affected by respiratory diseases which are the third biggest cause of death in England behind cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), lung cancer and pneumonia are the most common causes of deaths – with service users most at risk during the winter months when respiratory illnesses are at their most prevalent.

Asthma is another respiratory condition that requires constant care. Even if the asthma is not classified as severe, it must be managed to avoid complications further down the line. Our care team can work with both the service user and family to manage the signs and symptoms of the condition, as well as helping to make healthy life choices to reduce the risk of complications.

Motor Neurone Disease

Living with motor neurone disease can mean adapting to progressive symptoms over time. Symptoms of motor neurone can include loss of strength and balance, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, and difficulty walking. As these symptoms progress there may be a need to make changes to your routine and to your household.

Here at Sam2Sam Deaf Care Service Ltd, we can help you assess symptoms and ensure that you are able to make necessary changes to your lifestyle and surroundings to support independent movement for as long as possible. We know that remaining in your own surroundings, amongst friends and family is a great way of remaining positive when coping with Motor Neuron Disease.

Most respiratory conditions can be managed by making healthy life choices, such as eating a balanced diet and keeping active. Being overweight increases the risk of serious complications due to the added strain this puts on the heart and lungs, on top of the respiratory illness.

At Sam2Sam Deaf Care Service Ltd, our care team will work with the service user to create a nutrition and exercise plan, as well as helping to make other healthy choices through home care visits, as well as assisted living services where this may be required. We will also offer support to family members to help the service user manage respiratory conditions that they are living with.

Learning disability and mental health conditions

People with a learning disability can be more likely to experience poor mental health. Learning disability is often confused with mental health problems. Evidence suggest that mental health problems may be higher in people with a learning disability than in those without a learning disability.

Mental health problems can affect anyone at any time and may be overcome with treatment and the right support from fully trained carers. We believe all people with a learning disability should have the same access to healthcare and treatment as everybody else.

Our aim is to provide self-directed support that puts people with learning disabilities or mental health conditions in control of their own lives and maximises their independence and social inclusion. We encourage people to be as active as possible and our experienced support workers use creative approaches to help our clients access new opportunities and fulfil their personal goals.
