This video is part of a series, Supporting Family Caregivers: No Longer Home Alone, being published in collaboration with the AARP Public Policy Institute. Results of focus groups conducted as part the AARP Public Policy Institute’s No Longer Home Alone video project, supported evidence that family caregivers aren’t given the information they need to manage the complex care regimens of family members. This video provides caregivers with tips for enhancing safety in the home for those with mobility challenges.
As we age, so do our eyes. The resulting changes can put older adults at risk for injury; limit participation in favorite activities; cause increased sensitivity to light and glare; and ultimately limit independence. However, in many older adults with “low vision” the problems are not so obvious to others—until we take a closer look and better understand the nature and extent of the problem.
However, there are many simple interventions and enhanced technologies available to maximize vision and function. This 30-minute program provides viewers with a broad range of tools and strategies to enhance safety and maximize independence, and describes services, tools, and options available for those with vision loss.
