Learning Disabilities

Learning Disabilities

What is a learning disability?

It is important we establish what we mean when we say learning disability. From Kirklees Council‟s perspective a learning disability includes the presence of:

  • A significantly reduced ability to understand new or complex information, to learn new skills (impaired intelligence).
  • A reduced ability to cope independently (impaired social functioning) that started before adulthood, with a lasting effect on development.

Welcome to Elite Care’s Learning Disability Services for Adults and Children.  At Elite Care we believe in empowering individuals to make decisions about their care/support and to live as much of an independent life as possible. Our aim is to be able to help and to make a difference in the individuals life and to be able to put a smile on their face when we bring that bit of happiness in their lives.  We work with clients families and friends to tailor a package of support needs around our client to ensure their needs are being met. A frequent review of the support package enables us to monitor and ensure our client’s needs and agreed outcomes are being met.  The review also allows us to increase or decrease the hours of the support package if required outcomes are being/not being met.  Our aim is to enable our clients to live an independent life as possible.  Our highly trained staff will provide basic life skills training to our clients and will help and support them in the activities they choose to do.  A sample list of our activities include:

  • Cinema trips
  • Shopping Centers
  • Educational trips out
  • Swimming
  • Physical exercise
  • Going to religious places for worship
  • Going for walks and much more

Elite Care will work in partnership with people who use services to create as wide a range of support choices as possible.  We aim to develop a thriving, strong and diverse care market that is flexible and responsive to everyone in Kirklees, not just those eligible for direct council support (i.e. those who are “Fair Access to Care Services” or FACS eligible), or those who the council supports financially.

Elite Care have on offer services that are fair, of good quality, offer value for money, change according to people’s needs/wishes and promote well being, independence and dignity.  We work towards personalised services that are designed around individual need.

Our aim for these services are to place an emphasis on prevention and early intervention, to help people remain independent and to reduce the demand on acute services; and promote health and well being in their widest sense, helping people to have greater control of the services they need, and supporting them to have more responsibility for the management of their own conditions / situation. Elite Care work in partnerships with professionals to design and deliver public services in equal partnership, encouraging people who use services, people who provide services and people who commission services to work co-operatively to deliver the best outcomes and establish sustainable support systems.

We provide our full range of services to people who may be self funding, funded through direct payments or personal budgets. We can discuss various options with referrers and individuals but in most cases an assessment of need may be required to be undertaken by Kirklees Social Care Services. Elite Care are flexible and can provide as much or as little care or support as is required.

Staff Suitability

Ethnicity of the learning disabled population

We expect to see a substantial increase in the number of young learning disabled people from minority ethnic communities between now and 2030, above the national average. 84% of all adults with learning disabilities known to Adult Services are white with 14% being non-white from minority ethnic communities. 25% or 1 in 4 of all 18 to 24 year olds are from the minority ethnic communities of which over half are of Pakistani origin. With a larger than national average minority ethnic community in Kirklees, we have seen a larger than national average increase in demand for support and services from this group. We expect this trend to continue. Evidence suggests the majority of learning disabled people from the minority ethnic communities tend to have more severe to profound learning disabilities.

Personal Care

Elite Care Services

Personal Care

Elite Care realised we could remove this headache by helping people and their families to choose personal assistants themselves and then employing them on their behalf. In a nutshell – You choose and organise your ideal personal assistants and Elite Care employ them for you – allowing all the choice and control, but without the hassle! Elite Care will then help you arrange the details of your day-to-day support to suit your own routine. You decide who comes into your home and when – rather than it being decided for you. Personal assistants can be neighbors, friends, family members (in certain circumstances) or someone found through advertising and interview, which we will help you with. Where there’s a training requirement, Elite Care will work with you to arrange tailored training for your personal assistants that matches your specific needs. Elite Care also help people with money management, by setting up an individual service fund, again to take yet another hassle out of managing your care and support.
