Daily Living Adaptations
Vision Rehabilitation teaching introduces safe, new ways to manage daily tasks and remain independent, such as cooking, personal grooming and managing medications. Certified vision rehabilitation therapists and/or occupational therapists work one-on-one with clients to teach safe new ways to do these basic tasks. These specially trained staff members provide instruction and information with regard to maintaining independent living skills and necessary communication.
Vision rehabilitation therapy may use some of the following resources or techniques in order to ensure that you can live independently at home, obtain or maintain employment, or participate in community life:
- Labeling and marking techniques
- Communication resources such as large print or braille resources; talking watches and alarm clocks, talking thermometers etc.
- Managing medications, personal grooming and money identification
- Proper food and cooking techniques as well as proper eating skills
