Free Sight Loss Awareness Workshops offered for Care Staff working in Southampton Care Homes.

 

 Help reduce the impact of sight loss, reduce social isolation and improve the quality of life of visually impaired residents with a Free Sight Loss Awareness Workshop.
Attendees will:

  • Gain a better understanding and awareness of sight loss.
  • Be more confident in supporting someone who has a sight loss.
  • Increase their knowledge of the resources, equipment and aids available to help residents in their daily lives.

 

These workshops are focused, interactive and informative. They cover:

  • Common causes of sight loss – we use simulation specs and interactive activities.
  • The day to day impact that sight loss has on someone – participation required.
  • Awareness of the correction of sight problems, such as glasses or improving contrast and lighting and other useful and relevant aids and equipment.
  • Explore communication skills and develop skills to guide someone who is blind or visually impaired.

 

An ‘Essential Daily Living Resource Box’ will also be available before and after the workshop. This includes:

Lighting, Magnifiers, Talking Clocks and Watches, Big print calendars and diaries, meal time aids and audio resources.
