We provide information and education to provide answers to questions about vision loss, concrete tips and techniques for care, and direction on how to access low vision services for all those who provide care for people with vision loss. This includes formal caregivers in health and aging service settings as well as family caregivers providing care for a loved one at home.
Our resources for caregivers include:
