We know that supporting someone living with a sensory loss can be challenging. We want to be able to offer information and help to you so you can be there for that person. This might involve assisting you to have a better understanding of their eye condition or how to communicate more easily if the person’s hearing is limited. We might be able to give you some suggestions on how to support the person to maintain or increase their independence but we are also here just to listen and give you time to talk.
We can also signpost you to specialist carer services who can complete an Adult Carer Support Plan with you to identify additional supports and services to assist you in your role as a carer.
