Intellectual disability signifies a significantly reduced ability to understand new or complex information, learn new skills or cope independently. Supporting and enabling children and adults with intellectual disabilities is a key focus at CareWorld. We aim to empower people and develop opportunities to enable their participation in the community as equal citizens.
Dignity and independence are key themes here at CareWorld. All of our care workers are sensitive to the possible risk factors for the client being aware of the multiplicity of physical and other challenges that may accompany intellectual disability. We understand that issues such as dental health, sensory impairment, nutrition, osteoporosis and exercise are all extremely important factors to people with an intellectual disability.
We are active members of Inclusion Ireland, Ireland ’s umbrella organisation for individuals and groups living and working with intellectual disability.
