General Home Safety Tips
By: Carmen Willings
Staying safe and complete activities independently is important for lifelong independence. Adaptations can help individuals who are blind or visually impaired move safely and efficiently through their environment. A persons need for adaptations to the environment depends on their visual impairment and any additional disabilities. It is important to understand each persons visual diagnosis and the implications with regard to functional vision to make the appropriate adaptations in order to maximize each persons use of vision.
There are simple adaptations you can make throughout the home that can help you or your family member achieve independence. Learning to move safely and perform tasks independently is critical to prepare your family member to either live independently or to continue to live independently following vision loss.
