We often place people with disabilities in one category but the truth is that every disabled person is different. Not only do they face different challenges, but they also require different care. And since the care they need varies considerably, finding the best solution for every individual will require a thorough assessment and evaluation of available resources.
Not all disabilities are physical, some people have a mental impairment that prevents them from being able to carry out simple day to day tasks. Physical and mental disabilities include the following:
● Absence of limbs
● Heart disease
● Multiple sclerosis
● Learning difficulties
● Downs syndrome
● Mental illness like anxiety or depression
Most disabled people are adults since the elderly are more inclined to develop a disability as they age.
What Is the Prognosis for People Living with a Disability?
With the advancements in technology and the improvements in medical treatment, more and more disabled people are able to live a somewhat 'normal' life. Depending on the disability, the person may be able to live on their own, with loved ones or in assisted facilities.

While disability does present its fair share of challenges, it doesn't mean that life can not be fulfilling. For the most part, a fulfilled life means being in control of how you live and your day to day activities.
CareChamp can offer help with everyday tasks and provide practical support. This can include help with things like personal hygiene, cleaning and shopping and might include special equipment to increase mobility.
Keep in mind that living at home isn't suitable for those with complex levels of disability. Because every disability patient is different, it's crucial to find the right care plan and review it on a regular basis, involving all parties like friends and family.
