Living with Sight Loss
The Living with Sight Loss course is a free one day workshop and discussion session which offers practical and emotional support for people adjusting to sight loss and those close to them.
Each course is tailored to the needs of the attendees, so every course may offer something different and can include:
- Assistive Technology
- Eye Health
- Socialising and sharing experiences
- Safety in the home
- Reading and writing
- Aids for daily living
- Emotional wellbeing
- Overcoming barriers to mobility
- Welfare rights
- Information on other sources of help
The course is particularly useful to people who are newly diagnosed or know that their sight will deteriorate significantly with time. It is delivered by a facilitator from Action for Blind People who is severely sight impaired himself and speaks from personal experience about how he deals with sight loss on a day to day basis.
We hope to run courses every 6 to 8 weeks in locations across Buckinghamshire. Visit our News page to find out when the next course is due to take place.
