Daily Living Adaptations
Vision Rehabilitation Therapy introduces safe, new ways to manage daily tasks and maintain independence. Certified vision rehabilitation therapists and/or occupational therapists work one-on-one with clients to teach adaptive methods to complete basic tasks such as cooking, home care and medication management.
