Personal support that’s right for you
It’s common to experience changes in your vision as you move into your senior years, but that doesn’t mean you have to lose your independence.
Maintaining your independence
Whether your vision has recently started declining or you have lived with low vision for a while, it’s important to be able to maintain your independence and quality of life.
With support from our dedicated and friendly team, you can learn practical techniques to stay in control of your life and live the way you want to, regardless of your level of vision.
Depending on what you hope to achieve, you can become more independent at home, continue spending quality time with your family, manage grocery shopping, cook, attend appointments unassisted, and even enjoy books and television. Whatever you need to maintain your independence, we can help.
Skills to remain independent
Whatever you want to do at this stage in life, we can ensure you have the right skills and support you need to make that possible. Some of the things we can help you with include:
- Completing daily activities in your home like cooking, cleaning and gardening
- Getting around your home and your neighbourhood safely
- Participating in recreational activities like art, sport and music
- Using technology to enjoy television, books and newspapers
- Enjoying the companionship and mobility a Guide Dog can offer
- Connecting with other people one-on-one or in larger social groups
“You wouldn’t think that such a simple thing like a cane could make such a difference, but it’s given me a lot of the freedom I thought I’d lost. I allowed my world to shrink and the cane’s opened it up again.”
