Adult Services Philosophy of Care

Young man at Forward Vision clapping handsThe philosophy of care for Royal Blind's Adult Services is:

Recognising strengths and needs

Each adult in our care is an individual with unique strengths and needs. At all times they are afforded privacy and dignity and are encouraged to express their own beliefs and opinions. 

Respect and empowerment 

The individual's right to personal and private space is respected. In line with their assessed needs and capabilities, the residents are empowered to take well-assessed risks to enhanced their personal development. Encouragement is given to each individual to live their lives as independently as possible.


The strengths and needs of each individual are assessed and they are encouraged as much as practically possible to participate fuly in the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of their care.


To meet our residents' needs we liaise closely with other agencies and make use of outside social facilities. We encourage and sustain links with family and friends and facilitate integration with the local and larger community.
