Expert support for the deaf
Losing the ability to hear can be extremely frustrating. But with expert support for the deaf or hard of hearing people in familiar surroundings in comfort at home can alleviate these challenges
At Verity Healthcare, our home-based support has been specially designed to meet the needs of deaf people or those who are hard of hearing. As one of the few companies that deliver services specifically for deaf people, we are very proud of value-added support that we have implemented to meet the wide range of needs of marginalised group of people.
Our staff are specially trained to offer person-centred deaf support services including high standards of personal care, reliability and friendly service to clients to enable them to live in their own home. This means that our services are tailored to meet the needs of our clients.
Our deaf care services are focused on providing support for deaf people in their homes – the environment they know best and where they want to be. At home, our clients can continue to live normal lives without any disruption to what they’re used and the happy memories they hold. We work in partnership family, friends and/or advocates to implement services which are in the best interest of the deaf or hard-to-hear person.
We work with speech and hearing professionals to adopt best practice to undertake needs and risk assessments to deliver a care plan that meets the requirements and promote the wellbeing of you or your loved one. In putting a care plan in place, your views, wishes, feelings and beliefs are valued and recognised in the belief that the individual is best-placed to judge the individual’s well-being and in line with the Care Act 2014. All care and/or support plans and risk assessments are reviewed on a 3-monthly basis or more frequently if required.
Our care staff understand that 0ne-size fit all approach does not work for anyone and so they have been trained to different forms of communication as the best option for transmitting information. Some have been trained to use the British Sign Language, large majority use lip reading and they all speak slowly and repetitively so that the hard-to-hear. We’ll always find the best method of communication that works for you or your loved one.
