Low-Vision Aid Program

Many seniors are unable to perform basic activities such as cooking, telling time or dressing due to failing vision.  This program provides low-vision aids to seniors so that they can maintain independence.   JFS social workers identify and refer seniors with low-vision to a committee that consists of trained volunteers, supervised by Elaine Parker – representative of B’nai B’rith.  The volunteer meets with the senior to determine which low-vision aids would be helpful and trains the senior on how to use the aid.  The funding for these aids is provided by B’nai B’rith Maimonides Lodge #46.
