Independent Living

From cooking safely to taking the bus, we share ways people with vision loss can live their daily lives with more independence.

Live More Independently

Through assessments, trainings and peer-to-peer interactions, consumers learn how to cook safely, label/organize things, and manage time, money, and medication.

Virtual and in-person trainings focus on peer modeling and idea sharing where everyone can have open conversations about the challenges they’ve faced.

Be Supported on Your Journey

No one should have to experience vision loss alone. Support groups and adjustment services are offered to support a consumer’s emotional well-being on their vision loss journey.

Join a virtual support group offered four times a year, stay connected through the private Facebook group and if you’re interested in counseling for adjustment to blindness, contact us.
