We provide one-on-one and group support through the Living Well, Living Safe, Coping with Loss and Care for Carers programs.
The Living Well Program helps you understand the causes and effects of vision loss and its impact on everyday life. You’ll learn strategies to cope with vision impairment, and discover equipment that can help with tasks such as handling money, shopping, personal care and meal preparation.
Coping with Loss
The Coping with Loss program helps you manage feelings of loss associated with vision loss and other age-related medical conditions.
Care for Carers
Care for the Carers groups are for people who care for relatives or friends with vision impairment. The groups aim to:
- Increase knowledge and understanding of eye conditions
- Share information about strategies, services and benefits available to individuals with vision impairment and their carers
- Gain valued support from others who are caring for people experiencing vision loss.
The Living Safe program empowers you by teaching essential self-defence, assertiveness, awareness and protective strategies. These strategies will increase your self-confidence, wellbeing and sense of safety when out in the community, at home and in the workplace.
