The Essex Cares Sensory Service aims to support those with a sensory loss to maintain their independence and dignity in every aspect of daily life.

We can provide holistic assessments and appropriate support to the individual and those around them who may also be affected by a sensory loss.

We will also seek to raise awareness of the needs of those with a sensory loss with everyone we meet.
