Assisted Living Options for People with Vision Impairment

older hands tracing words on a page while reading

According to the American Foundation for the Blind, over six million seniors have some degree of vision loss.

Vision Loss is a common issue that makes living alone difficult for many elderly people. It can be difficult for seniors with vision problems to complete daily tasks on their own due to dangerous staircases, tedious housekeeping tasks, cooking, and personal care.

While living at home may become dangerous for seniors with vision loss, many seniors with vision impairments are still active, healthy individuals who do not require the 24-hour care provided by nursing homes. Fortunately, for seniors with vision impairment, assisted living communities can be an excellent housing option.

We can assist you if you are considering assisted living for yourself or a loved one who has a vision impairment. We explain what assisted living is and how it benefits seniors, how to pay for assisted living, and how to find a senior living community in this guide.
