Cerebral Palsy care at home

Expert care that lets you live life to the full

Independence matters

For our clients with cerebral palsy (CP), having a full time 24-hour carer or personal assistant (PA) living with them in their own home means they can enjoy the independence to live life however they want.

Our home carers are ‘enablers’ in the fullest sense. Our underlying philosophy is that all carers should assert their clients’ dignity and independence – this forms a key part of their training.

We train all our carers to give as much personal care and help with mobility as is needed (including hoisting), as well as to carry out the usual tasks of daily living such as cooking, laundry, light housework and helping their clients get out and about.

Christies Care in action - real life stories

Wesley Scott is a prime example of how carers from Christies Care can help a clever, determined man live life on his own terms and achieve the same dreams of contributing to society that many people share:

“I’m a 34 year old man who has, since birth, had Spastic Quadraplegic Cerebral Palsy. I need to use an electric wheelchair on a full time basis to enable me to maintain independent mobility. I also require 24 hour care support to live independently.

I grew up in London and was educated at various mainstream schools. At 19 I started a degree and after graduating with first class honours I began a PhD looking at how we make the research process more inclusive, specifically to those with Specific, Critical, Additional Needs (SCAN).

Having the support from Christies Care is really important to me because not only does it allow me to live safely and independently it allows me to do more than just exist. I’ve been able to achieve my aspirations and live a full and active life, without having to worry about what to do if I need the toilet in the middle of the day or night or worry about what time I’m going to bed.

Now I’m planning to continue teaching and trying to help people understand that disabled people are differently abled and not disabled – so society should change to enable differently abled citizens to lead full and productive lives.

I have been using Christies Care since 2011 and I find that the well trained support workers enable me to both live independently and contribute to society in a meaningful way.

Additionally, they don’t just meet my physical needs but my wider emotional and social needs too. I have a good team of support workers who are fully aware of my needs and understand the high standards which I like in all areas of my life. I really love how my support workers take a genuine interest in me and my life. I can’t thank them enough for the work they do daily. Without their help, understanding and support I would not be able to continue living my life the way I want to.”
