Intellectual Disability Services at Prestige: Everything You Need to Know

intellectual disability services

It can be challenging to care for someone with an intellectual disability. Caregivers must be familiar with their loved one’s unique needs. They must integrate the proper social and communication skills to support development and avoid mood swings. That is when Intellectual Disability Services can help. 

Family caregivers often experience stress when dealing with a loved one with intellectual disabilities. They may feel like they don’t have time for themselves. They may miss out on work, which may lead to financial issues. Feelings of depression and anxiety may arise.

Prestige can help. We provide intellectual disability services that encourage individuals to thrive in an at-home setting. Read on to learn more about what we have to offer.

Many people with intellectual disabilities experience isolation due to exclusionary practices. Caregivers serve as companions to ensure that loved ones don’t feel isolated. They can also teach them to use technology and take them to social events so they can interact with others.
