Understanding Sensory Loss training course : Visual Impairment
This course is aimed to help staff working with individuals who suffer (to a lesser or greater degree) with sensory loss through visual impairment. Whilst sensory impairments may be considered part of the aging process (or possibly the result of a separate primary medical condition) this does not mean that nothing can be done to assist those clients who are often struggling to maintain a level of independence.
Such individuals may have lost confidence, often becoming increasingly withdrawn and isolated as a result of having to cope with the every day difficulties and challenges they face.
Our Trainer has over 25 years experience as a Practitioner within the field of sensory loss and works with staff throughout various sectors of Health and Social care to help carers to recognise the signs and symptoms of sensory loss, understanding the large impact these can have for our clients and offers suggestions as to how we can work with such individuals to improve their quality of life, independence and methods of communication.
To help Staff and Carers:-
- To “see through different eyes” – involving experimental exercise of different types of sight loss
- To be able to assist clients who are visually impaired to make better use of their own vision
- To be able to learn and use “safe guiding techniques” when working with sight impaired clients
- To understand where to access the appropriate services and equipment to assist and support these clients
