|Live safely with low vision|
- Preventive health: A senior’s regular exams should include vision, including a check of eyeglasses to make sure they fit properly, as well as blood pressure, balance and gait.
- Home design: A home designed for someone with low vision includes bright lighting, pathways free of furniture and cords; visual contrast between floors and walls; nonskid flooring, and bathroom safety devices such as grab bars and raised toilet seats.
- High-tech assistance: Monitoring and safety devices — such as large-button phones with talking caller ID, wearable emergency communications devices and fall monitors — provide peace of mind.
- Self help through education: “It All Starts With a Fall — Your Guide to Help Prevent Falls” helps readers identify and correct fall hazards in their homes and yards, teaches about personal safety tools that can make living at home a success, and offers instructions for what to do if they fall. A free copy, along with valuable coupons for fall prevention products, is available from The CareGiver Partnership.
