Description

People who care for a family member who has learning disabilities face many of the same challenges as those in other family carer roles, but with distinct differences. Many people with learning disabilities depend on family support all their lives, regardless of where they live, or until the carer dies. This module explores the experiences, challenges and rewards of being a family carer, focusing in particular on what happens when the person with learning disabilities moves out of the family home. Recognising carers’ experience, expertise, involvement and what is important to them can have a positive impact on outcomes.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
1. Define what is meant by a family carer.

2. Analyse the challenges facing family carers of people with learning disabilities.

3. Outline what family carers consider to be the positive aspects of caring for people with learning disabilities.

4. Discuss why family carers may plan for a member with learning disabilities to move out of the family home.

5. Reflect on what is important to family carers, when the person moves out of the family home.
