Living with Autism and Learning Difficulties

At CareMatch, we understand that living with autism or a learning difficulty can vary hugely from person to person, and it can have a huge impact on the Care Receiver and also those around them.

We know that there is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment when it comes to autism and learning difficulties. At CareMatch we have Carer Members with the necessary training and experience to tailor a Care Receiver’s care journey exactly to their very specific needs. Whether you or your Care Receiver needs someone for a couple of hours a day to help with day-to-day tasks and errands, or needs a higher level of support with a Live-in carer, CareMatch are here to help. If you are the regular caregiver for someone with autism or learning difficulties, we understand that it is easy to feel stressed, overwhelmed and alone. At CareMatch, our team of experienced Carer Members are on hand to offer help and support, so that you don’t feel you are caring for someone by yourself, and the Care Receiver can have the best care journey possible

What does autism and learning difficulty care include?

  • Help with administering medication
  • Low-support medical care if needed
  • Personal care, such as help with getting dressed, going to the toilet or having a bath
  • Physical and mental support including help and encouragement with conversation and physical activity
  • Help with household tasks, such as the laundry, cooking meals or walking the dog.
  • Running essential errands, for example collecting your medication or doing a food shop
  • Companionship - We understand that Care Receivers with autism and learning difficulties appreciate a familiar face around the house, and our Carer Members are on hand to help alleviate any anxieties they may have, and offer the patience that they need in order to communicate effectively with people around them
  • Overnight Care - Care Receivers with autism and learning difficulties may be prone to waking up in the night and they can become confused if they do. Our Carer Members are on hand to offer help and reassurance during the night to ensure a Care Receiver’s safety and alleviate any anxieties
  • Respite Care - If you are a Care Receiver’s regular care giver, and you need some extra support or some time off, our team of Carer Members can step in and help and give you the peace of mind knowing that your Care Receiver is receiving the high quality of care they are used to

Our specialist Carer Members have the necessary training and experience in working with clients with autism and learning difficulties to ensure a high-quality care service that is tailored to them and their needs specifically. At CareMatch, we strive to enable our Care Receivers to live as independently as possible, at home for as long as they can so that they can continue with the activities they enjoy.
