It takes inspiration and perspiration
You’ve seen the video, below are the details of the services – the necessary perspiration – part of the skills and attitude our Senior Program offers!
The Colorado Center for the Blind works to change the experience of older blind and visually impaired persons from frustration to independence. With education and training seniors can and do obtain the skills and confidence necessary to stay in their own homes and continue be contributing members of their communities.
As such, we offer an array of services to seniors experiencing vision loss:
Older visually impaired individuals often have difficulty with independent living skills necessary to stay in their home. However, with training, these seniors can continue to be fully independent in their home environment. Staff of the Colorado Center for the Blind provides instruction in seniors’ homes in the areas of:
- Cane Travel & Mobility
- Food Preparation
- Marking and Labeling Techniques
- Cleaning Techniques
- Dialing the Telephone
- Sewing and Crafts
- Organizational Skills
SENIOR GROUPS: SHARED SUCCESS
Many seniors who begin to lose their vision find that it is helpful to discuss this with others who have experienced the same loss. An independent and confident older blind individual facilitates our support groups. Through this process visually impaired persons learn that they can continue to do many of the same things they did when fully sighted.
