Our work is designed to promote maximum functioning, equipping individuals who are blind or visually impaired with the skills and knowledge needed to be self-sufficient. For adults and seniors, we provide the following training:

  • Independent Living Skills
    Learn adaptations for cooking, cleaning, money management, home organization, personal care and other daily tasks.
  • Orientation and Mobility Training
    Discover new techniques for traveling independently and safely, problem solving, and accessing public transportation. This training works to ensure individuals are oriented with their home and community surroundings and can be safe and confident travelers.
  • Diabetes Self-Management
    Become familiar with resources and techniques to help you manage your diabetes. Classes focus on managing medication, diet and monitoring blood sugar levels. Services are provided by an Occupational Therapist who is a Certified Low Vision Specialist and Certified Diabetes Educator. These services are usually covered by Medicare.
