Sight and hearing - assessing your needs

If you feel that you may need some support to remain safe and independent you can ask your council for an assessment. A rehabilitation officer will assess you and support you through any changes as a result of your sight and/or hearing loss. They will offer help and advice on:

  • mobility within your home and daily living skills
  • mobility and safety outside your home
  • communication needs
  • equipment to help you
  • information about support groups
  • benefits advice
  • advice on education, employment and accessing your community

Our sight and hearing service is provided through Millbrook Healthcare and you will be allocated a rehabilitation officer from this service.

Contact us if you would like to request an assessment.

Advocacy may help you if you need help to express your views and wishes.
