For all those family members or close friends out there, sometimes it is difficult to accept the fact that our parents, grandparents or even great grandparents are getting older.
Older people often experience low vision or blindness. When caring for someone who has low vision or blindness, it’s important to: say your name when you arrive; use a clear natural voice when speaking; say what you’re doing if you’re moving about the room or leaving; tell them if there’s food in front of them including what it is and where it’s placed on the plate, perhaps using the idea of a clock face (for example beans are at 12 o’clock). If you need a professional to check your eyesight Geoff Day is an Australian-based health professional. Geoff is trained as an Optometrist and has practices located in Cowra, Yass, Grenfell.
