What is rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation is help you can receive from your local authority, or a local organisation acting on their behalf, to learn or re-learn some of the essential daily living and mobility skills which have been affected by your sight loss.
The sorts of activities your rehabilitation officer can help you re-learn includes:
- Cooking and preparing food
- Cleaning and looking after your home
- Washing and getting dressed
- Moving around and getting out and about
Rehabilitation should be given in addition to any longer-term care needs your local authority helps you with.
