Caring for Someone with Vision Loss
Thursday, May 6, 2021, 3:30 pm ET

Caregivers and the loved ones they support are a diverse community. They include parents, children, partners, and siblings among others. Caregivers provide essential physical, emotional, and financial support. However, they are often a silent partner and their needs are often overlooked and unknown. In this panel discussion, we will discuss the joys and struggles of caring for a loved one with vision loss.

There will be time for Q&A. Please send questions in advance to education@fightingblindness.ca
