How can we help?
People with PMLD can be as dependent in adulthood as at birth and this has huge impact on the family, both emotionally and physically. In most circumstances parents/carers act as advocates to provide a life that is ‘in their best interests’. By providing Day Opportunities, families are able to carry on with their daily lives, providing support in the home, in the community or at Days 7am to 7pm Monday to Saturday. We have a bank of fully trained and experienced staff, with staggered working patterns to meet a variety of needs at a variety of times during the working day. We aim to be infinitely flexible looking to build solutions around the family that allow the individual to flourish and sustain the family unit.
