Care Partners

Main Content

This program is designed for family members and partners who are supporting a loved one with vision loss. This program offers participants the opportunity to share their experiences and gain coping skills. 

This is a 12-week program that meets biweekly.

We’ll talk about:

  • What it’s like to support a loved one who has vision loss
  • Understanding their eye condition
  • Coping with guilt and grief
  • What happens when you can’t be there to provide support
  • Travelling with someone who has vision loss
  • Organizing the home for safety and comfort
  • Taking care of yourself
  • The rewards of supporting a loved one
  • Community resources
