Caregiving When Blind or Low Vision
When someone you love is very ill, recovering from surgery or injury, suffering from a long-term debilitating condition, or is simply becoming more fragile through the aging process, you will very likely be the one to step up and do what is needed. You might be blind or have low vision, but at times like these, your blindness needs to take a back seat. Yet, it is very much still there. You get creative in working with your blindness to deal with the more significant and immediate situation. Read our peer advisors’ stories about overcoming the challenges of being a caregiver who is blind or visually impaired. Please share your own stories so we can inspire others by sharing the load to make it a little lighter.
