Supporting People with Physical Disabilities
Physical disabilities vary and come in all forms. They result from different causes and differ in people who seem to have the same physical disability. Whereas some people are born with a physical disability, others develop a physical disability due to external factors, such as accidents and injuries.
Physical disability can make an individual feel bad and embarrassed about themselves. They can also face unlimited challenges when performing activities of daily living or any other tasks. Therefore, they may need support and care. It is important to understand physical disabilities to be able to offer support.
