This free rehabilitation teaches the visually impaired how to get around on their own again. It focuses on the basic skills of daily living and how to effectively carry out tasks like identifying money and clothing, ironing safely, cooking, pouring drinks and general housekeeping.
This training is vital to ensure that those with little or no vision gain confidence and self-sufficiency. Our instructors assist with teaching people new skills and safety measures – even how to move about and commute on their own – in order to live successfully in society.
It is important that a visually impaired person should not be forced to stop working. We meet with their employer to help keep that person employed, research other opportunities within the organisation as well as conduct on-the-job training.
Blind SA stocks a range of assistive devices. These can be ordered directly from us by calling Sharon Ahmed on 011 839 1793, or by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sharon will happily assist you with any additional information you may need.
