The enforced change that comes with a vision or hearing loss diagnosis can be emotionally challenging and even completely overwhelming. We help to provide emotional and social support to those with visual impairment through our Blindsided NZ low vision program.
This includes discussing the challenges you face so that we can come up with a plan together for how you will handle things such as employment, family life, and your home life in the future. If you are finding it difficult to move forward or picture what the future will look like, we can help you to plan for the unexpected so you feel confident and in control of your life.
As part of our low vision services, we can identify which of your needs are currently not being met and provide referrals to the appropriate organisations. This may include referrals to other low vision services as well as mental health services or support to access skills and accessibility training.
If you are an organisation or company that also provides low vision services, we would love to collaborate with you, Whenever we discover a gap in the current services for those with low vision we aim to fill that void. That often requires co-creation with other service providers. Let’s work together to make sure that no one falls through the cracks.
Let’s work towards the future you want together. Contact us today to find out more about how we can help you.
