Cerebral Palsy Injury


Managing a condition such as cerebral palsy can be challenging. When you are first diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you may be able to manage your symptoms mostly on your own, you might find that you require someone to lean on if your loved one is having difficulty managing. Having someone who specialises in multiple sclerosis support at home will mean that you have someone with you who has hands on experience and knowledge about ways in which you can continue to live independently, on your own terms. Working with you and your loved ones, your cerebral palsy private carer will assist you in developing ways in which you are able to continue living your life as independently as possible, whilst managing your condition.

Cerebral Palsy is a neurological disorder that impacts the muscular control in various parts of the body. This condition can lead to impaired mobility, difficulty with speech and a reduced ability to look after their own individual needs. The good news about cerebral palsy is that it non-progressive, this means the condition will never get worse. However, a young adults grow up and desire an independent life away from their parents, or as an older person living with the condition finds themselves being alone, a specialised private carer in the home can support those with Cerebral Palsy and can provide valuable assistance.

When we hire our experienced Cerebral Palsy carers there are some important qualities we look for in all our carers. We believe some of the many aspects good carer should have is being respectful, patient, reliable and qualified.

Some of the effects of Cerebral Palsy can have a significant impact on the person’s quality of life. They may experience mobility problems, premature ageing, issues with swallowing, and an array of mental health conditions. It is also common for the person to have post -impairment syndrome, which can cause a combination of chronic pain, excessive tiredness, muscular weakness, repetitive strain injuries and bone deformities. These can make a person's independent living very challenging, which is why a private carer may be the best option.


Our private carers are there to simply make your day to day life easier and lift the weight off your shoulders. This will allow the individual living with the condition to continue their life with independence. The carers will always encourage your loved one to eat more healthy meals and maintain an active lifestyle, as well as accompanying you to any activities you may have. By having a private carer for Cerebral Palsy, they will be able to give you the support and assistance you need.

There are a range of duties your private carer can carry out for you, such as:

  • Helping with any personal care and hygiene
  • Preparing any meals and sharing recipes and nutritional information
  • Liaising with doctors and arranging any appointments if needed
  • Running errands, such as grocery shopping or picking up laundry
  • Helping to keep your household clean and tidy
  • Managing any medication and ensuring its taken on time
  • Feeding and walking any pets you may have
  • Preparing hot and cold beverages

As well tasks around the house, or personal hygiene, private home care for the elderly in Leeds can also provide a great deal of emotional support. Even though the ideal scenario is to stay in your home, there may be times when you get the feeling of loneliness and isolation. Whether you want to share stories and experiences over a cup of tea, or simply just want someone in the house with you, a private home carer can offer you companionship. It also allows you to continue your day to day activities and still see your friends or loved ones when you wish. All of our carers are fully experienced and will have a deep understanding of the impacts and struggles you may face, which your loved ones may not fully understand.

Verbal communication is sometimes an issue when caring for someone with cerebral palsy. So our carers will look towards other methods. We’ll find a communication form that suits the individual.

When you choose to work with Guardian Cares, we’ll put together a tailored care plan for the individual with Cerebral Palsy that will meet all of their needs.

The different types of private home care a person with Cerebral Palsy vary in cost quite significantly. This will depend on the type of care you need, the level of support and geographical location. It is important for you and your loved one to know all the information and facts before starting your search for a carer, as this will involve financial planning.

Hiring a Live-In carer in Leeds tends to be the most expensive option, considering your carer will be with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But this very popular as it allows you to remain in the comfort of your own home, without worrying about going to a retirement residence, and in comparison it is much more affordable. Live-In care is different to other types of care because it billed either by the day or the week. It will improve the quality of life for people and and much greater independence than a care home provider.

Live-Out care is very similar to Live-In, as it also allows the care recipient to remain in their home. However, Live-Out does not consist of 24 hour care, but it is adapted to the specific needs of the individual. It is billed by the hour which will make it easier for you to keep track of how much the care is costing. Live-Out care can come in the form of either Part-Time or Full-Time, or Respite care.

The price of care can depend on the type of care you need. On average, on average, many of the private home carers may cost £12-15 an hour. Our Live-In care package can range from £100 - 140 per day, but this could depend on the complexity of the role. We also provide a wide range of overnight private carers, which can cost between £15 - £20 per hour. Budgeting and financing for private care can be difficult, but Guardian carers can provide you with any advice you need and search for the private carer that fits your financial requirements.
