We specialise in supporting and assisting people with sight loss to live independently in their own home. Gabby (pictured) has been supported by SeeAbility since 2014, when she moved into her flat at our supported living service in Eastleigh: I can’t thank the SeeAbility team enough for everything they’ve done for me. They have given me the best home to settle into We want to excel as a specialist provider of quality care and support, ensuring the people we support are at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to enable people to make choices and express their individuality. Personalisation is not a tick box exercise for us, but is fundamental to how we deliver our mission every single day of the year. Our specialist support team work closely with the people we support, providing rehabilitation to people with sight loss to help them maintain and develop skills, and be more independent. We have speech and language therapists who support people with communication difficulties and the team also provides assistive technology and accessible information. Supported living services are designed to meet daily living, social and personal care needs. These are arranged through a combination of one-to-one and shared support hours. . “When necessary [they] involve residents' therapists in problem solving more difficult situations together. This collaboration is very effective for the residents and helps all the professionals involved and clients feel like we're working towards the same client-centred goals.” – A health professional Our facilities and accommodation The communal areas of the property are furnished and equipped by SeeAbility.
