Adults & Seniors with Vision Loss

There is a wide range of needs and interests for Adults and Seniors who are blind or visually impaired.  The needs will be different if the individual has had a visual impairment since birth rather than a recent vision loss later in life.  The information and resources in this section are designed for individuals at various stages, as well as their families, employers, and caregivers.

The mission of VisionAware is to help adults who are losing their sight continue to live full and independent lives by providing timely information, step-by-step daily living techniques, a directory of national and local services, and a supportive online community.
Hadley Institute for the Blind and Visually Impaired
Free online resources for older adults with vision loss are designed to help individuals remain independent at home.  Videos, audio recordings, webinars, and courses on a range of topics offer practical ways to address daily living skills made difficult by vision loss.
