Action on Hearing Loss

At our meeting  on Friday 2nd June we welcomed Helen and Lucy from the Buckinghamshire Integrated Sensory Services formerly known as the RNID. They are based in Aylesbury at 44 Wedgewood Street Fairford Leys, Aylesbury (01296479970)

BISS provide support for adults, children and young people with sight or hearing loss which includes Visually Impaired, Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Deafblind adults. Lucy will visit your home and talk to you about the support or equipment you may need; the assessment is free and can be arranged by contacting BISS. They can give help on e.g. Registration of sight and dual sensory loss as well as hearing loss; Training for safe independent travel;  Equipment provision with demonstrations; Benefits advice.

Lucy also gave us a demonstration on some of the equipment to help with hearing loss. Many many question were ask and answered by Helen and Lucy – in fact we nearly didn’t have time for a tea break. A very enjoyable and informative afternoon.
