At Ivy Palmer, we understand living with sight loss can be challenging. Being told you have a visual impairment that can’t be treated can be difficult to come to terms with. However, we believe everyone affected by sight loss can face the future with confidence.
Our care agency can help support those who are living with eye diseases such as; glaucoma and macular degeneration, hereditary conditions or even eye injuries, on a short or long term basis with the support of a live-in carer.
Specialist Support For Visual Impairment
Most people want to stay at home when they have been diagnosed with a visual impairment and we understand there’s really no substitute for your own home. Carers have an enormous amount of experience in caring for those who have limited vision. They can understand how those who are visually impaired, can often live with depression and feelings of isolation and helplessness. Some people experience a range of emotions including shock, anger and denial similar to bereavement before eventually coming to accept their condition.
