Gadgets and aids for the visually impaired

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

 

Local MP Meg Munn recently visited Ravenscroft Bungalows, a support centre for people with visual impairments.  Situated in Richmond, the centre has all the latest gadgets and aids for people to test out before purchasing, ranging from can openers to computers.  Meg also was shown the different white canes available and the functions they serve.

 

Many of the people who use the service have lost their sight recently, and had been recommended to visit the unit from hospital. Users may need to be trained in new techniques to move around safely, and how to carry out a range of household task including deal with correspondence. Meg discussed with some of the users of this service how they found the help they received. 

 

Meg said:

 

“It was wonderful to see the array of equipment that is available. The highly trained staff does a great job in assisting people to remain independent.”
