We empower our residents

At Midlands Care, we understand the unique challenges faced by elderly individuals with sensory impairments. Our comprehensive services cater to the specific needs of each individual, offering specialised support for vision impairment, hearing loss, taste and smell disorders, diminished tactile sensitivity, balance and vestibular disorders, and proprioceptive impairments. Through our tailored interventions and accessible environments, we empower our residents to thrive and maintain their independence, ensuring their safety and well-being are prioritised at every step of their journey.

Sight loss and vision impairment.

Sight loss, also known as vision impairment, encompasses a range of conditions that affect an individual’s ability to see clearly. This can include conditions such as macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and more. Vision impairment can vary from mild to severe, impacting visual acuity, peripheral vision, depth perception, and color perception.

At Midlands Care, we understand the challenges faced by individuals with sight loss and vision impairment. That’s why we provide specialised support and provisions at selected services to address their unique needs. Our staff members undergo comprehensive training to assist residents with daily activities, mobility, and navigating their environment safely.

We also prioritise accessibility and inclusivity in our facilities, ensuring that residents with vision impairment have access to adaptive technologies and resources to enhance their quality of life. This may include magnifiers, large-print materials, tactile markers, and audible cues to aid in navigation and communication.

By offering personalised care and creating supportive environments, we aim to empower individuals with sight loss to maintain their independence, dignity, and overall well-being.
