It is possible for people with vision impairment to continue to live independent and meaningful lives with the help of an occupational therapist.
Services during the home visit can include but are not limited to:
- Home Safety Recommendations
- Lighting Recommendation
- Reading Training
- Home Mobility Training
- Cooking Safety Recommendations
- Environmental Adaptations
- Writing and Financial Management Adaptations
St. Luke's highly trained occupational therapists will evaluate, help, then educate a patient on how to compensate their vision loss by using other senses, such as touch, hearing and smell. They will then recommend and train a person to use assistive devices which can aid in completing daily activities.
