For those who are struggling with low vision, or helping someone adjust to living with vision loss, NJFFB’s Essential Low Vision Program should be the first step toward reclaiming independence. NJFFB stages a program that provides specific, personalized guidance to help persons with vision impairment as well as a friend or family member on the first Wednesday of most months.
Participants can expect to learn many strategies to increase safety and functioning in the kitchen, preventing falls and accidents, improving mobility and staying connected with friends and relatives.
