Home is where the heart is

As we age, our bodies naturally being to deteriorate, and our eyes and ears are no exception. For elderly individuals who are housebound, it can be especially challenging to maintain optimal eye and hearing health. However, it’s crucial to prioritise these aspects of our well-being, not just for our physical health but for our overall quality of life.
