The Torbay Community Support Service covers the towns of Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and the surrounding districts.”
The Sight Loss MOT
Cathy will carry our new ‘Sight Loss MOT’ which will help you identify what additional support might be helpful particularly if you have been newly diagnosed with sight loss, or if your condition or support needs have changed.
Having completed the ‘Sight Loss MOT’ we will work together to devise a help plan which will help you improve your independence and wellbeing.
Sight Loss Adviser
We offer a range of equipment and training to help you adjust to your sight Loss.
Our Sight Loss Adviser Nanette will be able to help you with a Lighting and Magnification Assessment, provide ‘Skills for Seeing’ Training and demonstrate a selection of equipment.
Sight Loss Hubs in Torbay
We have just launched a Sight Loss Hubs in the Paignton area and we are hoping to have more hubs soon. These will provide a community based service where people with sight loss can spend individual time with our Community Support Worker and Sight Loss Adviser.
This service is provided by appointment only.
We hope to host talk and support groups and welcome guest speakers to our Hubs in the coming months.
