What is Visual Impairment?

More than 2 million people in the UK live with a visual impairment and 340,000 people are registered blind or partially sighted.

To classify as visually impaired your vision must be worse than 6/12 Snellen, which is halfway down the optician’s chart. This is the same amount of vision loss that requires you to give up a British driving licence. Nearly 80% of the visually impaired are aged over 65 and 60% are over the age of 75. However, age isn’t the only cause of visual impairment. The most common causes of visual impairment are:

  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Refractive errors
  • Diabetes
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular degeneration
  • Injury or infection
  • Operations

More reasons to choose Tiggo Care

Our Care packages are bespoke

At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.

We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.

We're fully regulated

Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited to ensure we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.

We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice

Our carers are fully vetted & trained

At Tiggo Care, all of our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.

Frequently Asked Questions

What services are available for the visually impaired?

If you’ve been referred to a specialist low-vision clinic you will have access to advice about home adaptations as well as counsellors to support you to come to terms with your diagnosis. If you require support at home we can organise regular home care visits or full-time live-in care.

How can I adapt my home following a diagnosis of visual impairment?

The best thing you can do is to not move things around. People with a visual impairment tend to remember where things are and moving things around can cause confusion and accidents.

What are some tips for carers of people with a visual impairment?

The most important thing is to communicate clearly and effectively. Don’t rush your sentences. Also, make sure the environment is safe and comfortable. It’s important to maintain the person’s independence rather than doing everything for them so you should always ask them how you can help rather than making assumptions.

How can you care for visually impaired people at home?

Always speak normally and treat the person as you would other individuals. Show care and affection while supporting them with their mobility but remember not all visually impaired people need a guide.
