What does physical impairment mean?

People with physical impairments will generally have difficulty with mobility, movement and speech, and can find it hard when using their hands. They may also have trouble with coordination when grasping and moving objects, particularly in precise movements (manual dexterity). They may constantly need the use of a wheelchair, or just from time to time.

Some possible causes of physical impairment and physical disabilities
Physical disability or impairment may have occurred at birth (congenital) or could have been caused by a condition, or possibly something that happened later in the person’s life (acquired disability). 

There are many possible causes that contribute to physical impairment, such as having an injury, pulmonary disease, multiple sclerosis, amputation, cerebral palsy, heart disease, muscular dystrophy, respiratory disorders, epilepsy and other physical limiting conditions.

About physical impairment care in our care homes

We’re here to help
At all our Holmes Care Group homes, our friendly, trained, qualified teams and professional staff provide a 24 hour care and support system for all physical impaired patients; giving them assistance with everyday routines, like professional and safe administration of medications, help in the morning out of bed, getting dressed, assistance with mobility, and encouragement with eating and drinking.

Care plans for individuals with a physical impairment at our care homes
In all our services, we work with each resident to formulate a care plan, which ensures the care we provide is tailored to the needs of that person. At Holmes Care Group, we aim to address each residents' individual and varying requirements, so that everyone we care for, feels completely supported in every aspect of their life.

At Holmes Care Group, we know ‘peace of mind’ is an important factor in choosing a care home
Keeping physical impaired residents safe, comfortable and happy is a priority, as well as giving them a feeling of ‘being at home’. It’s also good to keep busy, which is why daily activities and weekly events are organised in and out of the care home. The interactive and social side of our activities help to give residents a better sense of independence and normality; well-being is a priority at Holmes Care Group!

There’s no place like home - There’s no place like Holmes Care Group
At all Holmes Care Group homes; nursing homes, residential homes and our day care centre, we make every effort to keep everyone, secure, safe, warm and welcome. This does not only apply to our residents, but also to family and friends when visiting their loved one. 

All our facilities are designed to enhance the lives of everyone living at the home. Many of our homes are set in scenic areas, and have excellent outside facilities, including patios and beautiful landscaped gardens. Visiting areas are designed especially for residents and friends, and family alike, to feel comfortable and relaxed at all of our care homes.

To all the staff at Almond View - a big thank you for looking after Mum, with such kindness and dedication. Despite living 400 miles away, I always had a good feeling that she was in good hands. When I did visit, the staff without exception, stopped to chat to us even though they were extremely busy. Please accept my heart felt thank you to you all - a real credit to Almond View.


Bankview Care Home

Thank you for the excellent level of care that my father, Frank Boyle, has received. Bankview demonstrated for us the template for a care home and how it should feel and be run. Friendly, welcoming, excellent care levels, length of time staff remain loyal to the home and above all a clear and comforting atmosphere of great leadership.

K Macdonald in memory of my Aunt Jean

I can't exaggerate the admiration I have for the management and staff of Craigielea. I've never experienced so much patience, coaxing, kindness and care. These people share their lives and emotions, laugh and cry and mourn for the people who entrust themselves to care.

J Ellis in memory of Steve

The staff talked about my best friend being an inspiration to them, despite his illness It made me change my approach with him, instead of being despondent and sad, I spoke with him the way we had always been with each other. The staff saw him as a person.
