This program provides information on resources for those living with sight loss and blindness. We have a team of individuals who will telephone and tell you more about our programs and services. They will also answer questions and provide information on a variety of topics from safety tips, lighting and magnification options, kitchen gadgets, talking books, and other resources to improve a person’s daily living experience. We also have team members who assist with apps for phones and computers and other tips on making your electronic devices accessible.
