Vision Loss and Daily Care

pexels-eren-li-7188804

Sight is one of the key senses we use to experience the world around us. From taking a glance at our surroundings, navigating our vehicles and viewing the visual stimuli of everyday life, our eyes are constantly taking in information. Vision can be affected, however, by a variety of factors. Disease, injury, aging and certain conditions can impact the level of vision in one or both eyes causing either temporary, immediate or gradual vision loss. When vision loss does occur, daily living can be greatly impacted. While individuals living with partial or total vision loss lead independent lives every day, there are circumstances where support may still be needed, especially when other factors are at play. Age-related impacts, health issues, mobility limitations and more can impede daily tasks and routines, and having a trusted care professional nearby can make a world of difference.

Here at Aqua Home Care, we have experience helping individuals with varying degrees of care needs find quality in-home care services. We match caregivers from our registry with those seeking support at home, and pairings are partly based on the client’s care needs. This ensures that each in-home care recipient is matched with a caregiver best-suited for providing their everyday support. Care plans are mindfully tailored for each unique individual for a personalized in-home care experience.
