Home-based support for people with hearing loss
There are many challenges associated with hearing loss. People impacted by severe hearing loss have to adapt to a new lifestyle. Typically associated with repeated exposure to loud noise and ageing, deaf elderly people may require additional support around their homes.
At Helping Hands, we’ve provided home-based support for deaf people for nearly 30 years. Through our deaf care services, we aim to provide support for deaf people in the environment they know best – their own home. This way they can continue to live their lives without any disruption to what they’re used to. Family members can still easily come to visit them, and they get to remain around their possessions – many of which hold happy memories.
Our deaf support services
All of our deaf support services are person-centred. This means they’re tailored to meet the needs of our customers. We work with professionals from the healthcare industry to deliver a deaf care plan that meets the exact requirements of you or your loved one.
Our care workers move into the homes of their hearing impaired customers to provide medical support. In our 30 years as a quality homecare provider, we’ve looked after deaf people affected by other conditions – such as Dementia. We ensure all of our carers are trained to manage medication and administer medication where necessary.
When providing support for deaf people, we know that one form of communication isn’t going to be the best option for all customers. Some use lip reading, others use sign language. We’ll find a method that works for you or your loved one.
Our carers can provide help for the deaf around their homes, but at the same time they won’t take over – they always encourage their customers to get involved if they want to. They can provide help in a number of different ways – from collecting the groceries from the supermarket to doing the washing up.
