February is Low Vision Awareness Month. Our vision is one of our most important senses. As an Occupational therapist, we are often called upon to educate an individual on compensatory strategies, along with helping them adapt their environment, to help them maintain their independence.
There are many diagnosis that can be defined by Low Vision. Low Vision is a medical condition where your eyesight impacts your independence with daily activities; it is beyond the typical age-related changes of aging.
An individual experiencing Low Vision not only has a decrease in independence with daily activities, but also with hobbies and socializing. An individual with Low Vision can also be at a higher risk for falling. This is where Home Helpers Home Care can help.
