skills training - provide help to continue living independently by developing strategies and skills to cope with different tasks in the home
low vision training - find out which types of magnifiers or lighting are useful and how to get the most out of the equipment that is available.
If you are having inpatient treatment at a hospital, please contact your GP as soon as possible following discharge so they can make the appropriate and necessary referrals to support your sensory loss.
