Adults with a sensory loss
Information and guidance for people with a sensory loss, including those with sight or hearing loss and those who are deafblind (dual sensory loss).
Social Services has a Sensory Services Team which includes specialist social workers and care managers who support people with sensory loss. They can provide a range of information, specialist advice and practical support.
Support services might include:
- equipment and adaptations to help someone manage at home;
- training and skills to maximise independence;
- assistance with personal care.
Before you can receive any of these services we would need to carry out an assessment of your needs.
