Over many years Nikola has advised Care Homes, Nursing and Residential Settings to help support them to identify the unique communication, access to information and mobility needs of people with dual sensory loss.
FACS has now produced Guidelines for Care Homes that take into consideration that:
“Appropriate and accessible communication for people with dual sensory loss is crucial in developing and nurturing relationships and providing a good quality, person centred care”
These guidelines, in addition to specialist training for staff to gain knowledge, skills and experience to support people with dual sensory loss and the opportunity to develop and improve their communication and competency skills, to help your Care Organisation comply with the Essential standards of quality and safety required by the CQC
