Older Adults

Vision Australia is here to support you to remain independent and active in your later years, whatever your level of vision.

As we get older, our vision levels naturally start to decline, but life doesn’t stop after sight loss and your dreams of travel, hobbies and independence can still be achieved. 

Vision Australia is here to support you and your loved ones to understand more about your vision condition and help you live life the way you want. We can support you to take part in social activities and build connections with others, get out and about in the community safely and confidently, remain independent in the home and learn how to use technology to stay in contact with friends and family.

Your support will be as individual as you are. We will take the time to get to know you, understand what’s important to you and find out what you want to achieve. We will work with and draw on the experience of our broad range of professional staff so you get the support you need, when you need it. 

Vision Australia’s professional staff includes occupational therapists, orientation and mobility specialists, adaptive technology specialists, emotional and recreation group facilitators, orthoptists and librarians. Our team is here for you whenever and wherever you need us.

Have a chat to us today and find out more. Just contact us on 1300 84 74 66 or call or visit your local office.
