Ark's Support in Practice
Jacqueline is 46 and has cerebral palsy. Her speech is limited and she was struggling to communicate how she wanted her care to be delivered. Ark has been working with Jacqueline to develop communication methods so she can manage her own care which has included her using voice control on her computer to specify what she needs and when, particularly at night.
Jacqueline’s care has been specifically tailored around a dedicated team of carers who have the right skills and experience to deliver her complex care. Jacqueline was hands on in choosing her care team to ensure she felt completely comfortable.
Jacqueline and her sister were keen to get back into the local community to encourage social interaction. Ark has supported Jacqueline and her family to achieve this and she now attends a coffee morning at a local community centre.
