Our staff work incredibly hard every day and travel all over Northern Ireland visiting people who are unable to attend their own opticians for a wide variety of reasons. Travelling in this heat and carrying all the equipment in and out to the van is pretty exhausting.

So it's great to see them taking a minute to enjoy the view and get some fresh air at Richmond Nursing Home, Cultra. #whataview #sammisworkperks #mobileopticians #outandabout #heatwave

We're all feeling very lucky to have a job that allows us to be out and about in this beautiful weather visiting people at home for their sight tests. Hats, sun cream and bottles of water have been added to our equipment list! 😎☀️ #heatwave #outandabout #eyetestathome

Yesterday our manager Louise and Dementia Champion Kerry spent the afternoon with Dementia Friendly Holywood supporting their Health & Wellbeing day. It's great to be out meeting new people and finding out about all the other support services available for everyone. And a good excuse to meet Lenny White and his gorgeous sensory pup 🤗

Optomise shared Lenny the dementia friendly barber's post.

As part of the training we offer for all care home staff, we have simulation glasses which give the wearer the experience of various eye conditions. It's a great learning tool.

This charity have done something similar for carers of dementia patients.

We love our job, the work we do and the people we meet. But it's always lovely to hear a little feedback. So thank you to Mrs K of South Belfast who just phoned the office to say thank you to Sarah and Hannah who came out to see her husband at home this morning. Warm, friendly and professional. We really appreciate the feedback.

Optomise are now officially Dementia Friendly. Meet our fantastic member of staff Kerry, who recently trained with The Alzheimer's Society to become our Dementia Champion. All our staff will now be taking the course lead by Kerry to become Dementia Friends in the coming weeks. A great course and supports our work in the community perfectly.

A fantastic and simple idea. I'm sure most people have something they could donate. Spread the word and support Alzheimer's Society
