Our group classes feature training in a variety of adaptive skills and techniques for seniors and others who are vision impaired. Classes are offered one day each week for six classes. Individuals learn to accomplish many tasks—like cooking safely in their homes.

In-home Instruction

Our Community Based Training program helps seniors adjust, adapt and continue to live independently with vision loss. Individuals benefit from personalized needs assessment and education in areas such as mobility, daily living activities, communications and basic computer skills.
