About Us

Development Disorders

Developmental disorders describe a group of conditions that begin early in life. Such disorders can affect a person in many areas including learning, communication and motor skills.

With the right treatment and management, a child can outgrow these conditions and symptoms. For others, their disorder can continue to affect their essential skills long into adult life.

Care Matters Homecare has the expertise and experience to support you or your loved one, helping them overcome challenges to enjoy a greater degree of independence and continue living at home.

Whether it’s a disorder in communication or learning, living with autism or something less common, our friendly specialist team can provide a level of care that helps make the lives of you or your loved one more manageable with every visit.
