For individuals with disabilities, it is crucial to have access to various disability services such as Care Agencies (to assist with day to day life) or Case Management (to manage a case if a large settlement has been given due to wrong conduct or negligence). The former is freely available through your local council following an initial needs assessment.
These services are essential to improving a disabled individuals way of life.
Brain Injury Lawyers
Brain Injury Lawyers can be used to represent individuals who have suffered physically and/ or psychologically as a result of wrong conduct or negligence perhaps at the workplace or place of birth impacting upon their lifelong potential.
Care Agencies provide a wide range of care services ranging from domiciliary to 24/7 support to individuals for a monthly or ‘as you go’ fee. All staff recruited through an agency undergo a strict training program monitored by the CQC to ensure quality of service and is an alternative to employing privately.
Case Management ensures ones health, social care, educational and employment needs are met through a collaborative process of assessing, planning and implementing cost effective resources such as therapists in order to maximise an individuals potential.
Orthotics play a vital role in improving the life of an individual by modifying a structural or functional characteristics of the skeleton using an external device. An example of this is an Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO) which can be used to improve the gait of an individual with Cerebral Palsy.
