Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is characterized as a series of ailments that occur when the areas of the brain that control movement and muscles are impaired or grow abnormally in individuals. It has an impact on a person’s mobility, stability, and posture. Although cerebral palsy solely refers to a movement disability, it can also be accompanied by behavioral issues, intellectual incapacity, seizures, visual or hearing abnormalities, and other developmental issues.

The most typical motor impairment in children is CP. They experience problems with faltering muscles due to the damage that occurs before, during, or shortly after birth. The degree of the brain’s deterioration determines how the muscles change.


Early-pregnancy infection, inadequate oxygen to the brain, and faulty brain development are the main causes of cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy cannot be cured, but it can be held in check with a program of physiotherapy and other therapies that allow affected individuals to live as normally as possible.


There are various forms of cerebral palsy which include:

  • Spasticity Cerebral Palsy – where the range of motion is limited by the tight, inflexible muscular strength, which causes muscles to spasm repeatedly, and can be exceedingly painful.
  • Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy – where a person experiences uncontrollable persistent or periodic muscle contractions, which makes it challenging for them to remain upright. Control over the tongue and vocal cords affecting speech production may also fall under this category.
  • Ataxic Cerebral Palsy – where balance and spatial orientation of a person are impaired because proper muscle patterns remain inactivated during the movement. They get unable to gauge their body’s location about their surroundings, which impacts their entire body, making it difficult for them to even walk.

Aid for adults with CP

Most adults who have cerebral palsy can work, go to college, have jobs, and start families. Our care professionals are there to make sure they may live happy and purposeful life for their families as well as for themselves. They need care that includes personal care, assistance with everyday tasks, optimization of mobility, pain management, fostering and assisting of life skills development, and stimulation of self-care.

Aid for kids with CP

Children with cerebral palsy will struggle with oral and fine motor skills, posture and stability, muscle mass, and reflexes. To make sure the full treatment plan is carried out by a care team with the specialized expertise to meet their complex needs, we collaborate closely with the specialty center caring for a child with cerebral palsy and their consultant pediatrician.


Our care team not only supports a child with movement but also with feeding those who use a gastrostomy tube as well as those who feed themselves. The carer will also prioritize social interactions, promoting developmental stages and academic achievements along with providing personal care and company.
