With the appropriate support available today, people with Down’s syndrome now live twice as long as they did 30 years ago.
HICA and Me offers Down Syndrome supported living throughout their five learning disability care homes. When carrying out an assessment for support for people with Down’s syndrome we consult with other professionals, link with the G.P where appropriate, and any other relevant agencies who support. Our team members are well trained and motivated to both help and direct where appropriate in down syndrome support.
Within our person-centred philosophy we always strive to view the world from their perspective. We always work with the individual and their particular needs and requirements. We understand that within their world perspective there are hopes, fears, challenges and varying interests. Whatever preoccupies one of our service users motivates us to help and our support plan for anyone with Down’s syndrome is tailor-made for each and every individual.
