Chris Frost

Rehabilitation Officer for the visually impaired (ROVI)

After joining the team in 2013, Chris has transformed the lives of Islanders with sight impairment by enabling independence through training in mobility, communications and activities of daily living.

Chris is the first point of contact for the service and will provide information on what help is available, put together individual programmes of rehabilitation, signpost to other members of the team or other organisations.

He is based at Westlea but spends most of his time visiting people out in the community. Chris has examples of many of the adaptive aids that can assist with everyday tasks and also provides training on how to use them.

Chris also provides visual awareness and sighted guiding training for organisations who may require it.

“I meet so many wonderful people in my role and there is a great deal of job satisfaction when you know you have made a difference”.
