Care Home Services
We offer care homes a free comprehensive service which will enable staff to be able to give further support to residents who are hard of hearing.
Our training and support programme includes:
Care and maintenance of hearing aids training – cleaning, re-tubing and changing batteries and Deaf Awareness training.
Follow up support on a monthly basis by a volunteer for up to six months, reducing to bi-monthly when staff are competent.
Further training given to new staff when necessary.
Why use our service?
“It is estimated that three quarters of the four hundred thousand people in care homes in the UK have hearing loss”
Research found that if care home residents’ hearing loss is managed effectively, there is a real chance of improving quality of life within a care home.
