Westminster Homecare has been providing support to people with learning disabilities since 1995, and whether supporting you in your own home or in supported accommodation, we recognise that everyone’s support needs are different. It is our ethos to understand an individual’s strengths and abilities and adapt our service accordingly, providing enabling support that develops independence and promotes involvement in day-to-day activities.
We have specialist teams for learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental-ill health; their expertise and experience is available across all of our services. We have considerable experience of supporting individuals with:

These include: behaviours that challenge; autistic spectrum disorders; complex health needs; communication difficulties; sensory impairment.
