Sensory Support Services

There are a range of support services available which can help you to live safely and independently.

If you think you need support you can contact us and we will run through some questions with you to look at how your sensory loss is impacting your day to day life. If you agree, we will be able to complete a specialist assessment that is related to helping you:

  • Be as independent as possible
  • Access rehabilitation programmes that help with daily living tasks
  • If eligible, provide pieces of equipment that can help with daily living
  • Support for family carers

Other types of support or a direct payment so you can organise the support to fit your individual personal needs.

Registering your sensory impairment with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead can make it easier to access a lot of the support and guidance which is available. It can help with benefits and other concessions, including:

If you qualify to be on the register, it is your choice to be registered or not. There are a range of advantages and disadvantages and you may want to look into what this would mean for you and your personal circumstances.
