Supporting carers of someone who has learning difficulties through one-to-one support.
Edinburgh Development Group (EDG) supports older families (parents or carer aged 50+) who have a young person or an adult child (or other relative) with a learning disability living at home with them.
EDG offers home visits, listens to what families need, and offers advice and practical support. They can support families to look toward a positive future and help is offered to assist families to plan for emergencies.
Their ‘My Life Book’ enables families to make a record of the information they hold. EDG can also support individuals with learning disabilities and their families to develop person-centred plans.
