BlindAid has an exceptional team of friendly and understanding Home Visitors that make regular visits to our 500+ Service Users to provide emotional support and practical help where possible. We will visit people at home or in sheltered accommodation or residential/nursing homes. The visiting service is free of charge and we aim to provide visits that take place every fortnight and usually last about an hour,
All of our Home Visitors are paid members of staff who have been carefully selected, DBS checked, trained and all receive regular supervision.
Our Home Visitors take care to treat every service user as an individual and work to the Vision 2020 ‘Seeing it My Way‘ outcomes framework:
A Home Visitor can help with such things as:
- Warm, friendly conversation and company
- Emotional support
- Practical support – for example reading/writing correspondence
- Providing knowledge on other services and support that may be useful.
- Providing information on what’s going on locally – for example: social clubs; local outings and events; local sports clubs and leisure activities; lunch clubs; etc
The Home Visiting service is available in the following boroughs:
- Hammersmith & Fulham
- Islington & The City
- Kensington & Chelsea
