Compassionate Counseling

Loss of vision causes stress for both the patient and their loved ones. Feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression are not unusual. Our social workers provide compassionate counseling to help you overcome these challenges.

Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired Masters Level Social Workers help people express feelings, adjust to vision loss and make plans for the future.

Visual impairment is a disability that affects not only the individual, but entire families and social networks. Often, visually impaired people feel isolated and dependent, and loved ones may need help understanding their feelings of loss.

They also educate family members and help them take maximum advantage of community resources for the visually impaired. And if in-depth counseling is required, ABVI makes appropriate referrals to other agencies.

Our Vision Rehabilitation Experts are dedicated to enhancing independence to those with visual impairment or blindness. The Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired provides the tools and knowledge needed to thrive in a sighted world.
