Physical Disability Team
We support people aged 18 to 75 who are living with a physical disability. This includes adults with an acquired brain injury which affects physical functioning. We also support disabled parents.
We assess and review needs and if you are eligible for support, can provide you with a personal budget. We also offer carers a carer's assessment to identify any help they might need.
(For support for people aged 0-25 years with additional needs, see our information on the local offer)
Telephone: 0345 045 5202
8am to 6pm from Monday to Friday
9am to 1pm on Saturday
We may support you with:
- personal care – things like washing and dressing
- getting out and about and meeting people
We aim to keep people living at home and in their communities for as long as possible.
Reablement (living independently)
We may provide a programme of reablement. This is short term support to help you live independently at home following an illness or operation. We tailor support to your needs to help you (re-)learn the skills needed for daily living.
Residential and Nursing Home Care
If reablement is not suitable, we may help you to find a residential or nursing home to meet your needs.
Support in the community
We may help you to access support in the community, including live-in care.
Equipment to aid independent living
The Technology Enabled Care team may provide equipment to help you to live independently. Equipment can also prevent the need for hospital or residential care.
Occupational therapy service
If you have a needs assessment this may be carried out by an occupational therapist (OT). They can also tell you about specialist equipment, or home adaptations, to help you stay independent.
Blue Badge scheme
Parking concessions may be available to disabled people who qualify for a Blue Badge.
