Older Blind Services
Our Older Blind Program assists clients in maintaining independence within their home and community settings. Our counselors provide these services from offices throughout the state.
To be eligible for Older Blind Services, you must:
  • Be at least 55 years old
  • Provide evidence of legal blindness or a progressive eye pathology, in both eyes, which could lead to legal blindness
  • Require services to maintain independence
  • Be a resident of South Carolina
The initial phase of all services begins with a determination of eligibility and an assessment of the individual’s concerns regarding performing daily living activities with vision loss. During the initial interview, information is obtained related to medical issues, family support, the current living situation and a comprehensive review of the consumer’s needs pertaining to independence.
After all the information is collected, we help our clients develop a plan of services, which could include:
  • Counseling and guidance
  • Training on how to manage personal care and daily tasks
  • Labeling and organizing items around the home
  • Safe cooking techniques
  • Adjustment to blindness
  • Referral to community resources
  • Low-vision evaluations
  • Orientation and mobility training
  • Instruction in the use of adaptive computer software
