Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a general term used by doctors to refer to a set of neurological conditions that affect movement and co-ordination. Neurological conditions affect the brain and nervous system. Cerebral palsy is caused by damage to the brain, which normally occurs before, during or soon after birth.

Our Stonehaven Care Team are trained to assist residents to manage symptoms, some of whom may require 24-hour care.

Depending on the care needs of each individual resident in the care home, we can offer a passive or more intense specialist physiotherapy programme to improve strength and mobility together with speech and language therapy and special diets for those with swallowing difficulties.
