Long Term Conditions

Are you Deaf or Hard of Hearing and suffer from another long term condition? If the answer is yes to both, then ISS may be able to help you.

A lot of deaf people feel unable to access healthcare services. There are various reasons for this

  • Problems using the telephone
  • A lack of confidence asking for additional help
  • Communication barriers when discussing need and when in group environments

Our skilled and experienced support workers understand the problems and barriers that deaf people face. We can put you in touch with other healthcare professionals to help you manage your long term condition with the communication support tailored to your needs.

We have contacts with healthcare professionals ranging from Diabetes support groups through to strong links with the Mental health team.

Our support workers will visit you in your own homes, assess your needs and support you on the journey to managing your long term health issues.

If you or someone else would benefit from this service please contact ISS today.

There will be no charge for your support as this service has been grant funded by the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group.
