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.
