  • Apply non-skid mats or appliques in bold, contrasting colors to the surface of the tub or shower.
  • Arrange your furniture so that there is a clear path for walking, and keep clutter out of walkways. Avoid using furniture on wheels.
  • Clap-on/clap-off lights in the living room and in your bedroom will keep you from having to get up from your chair to adjust the lighting.
  • During the winter months, keep outdoor pathways clear of ice and snow by using kitty litter or salt, or ask someone to shovel the walkway.

  • The American Foundation for the Blind created AFB Senior Site (www.afb.org/seniorsite) to help older Americans and their family members cope with age-related eye diseases -- a growing public health problem in this country. Eye experts say that by the year 2030, rates of vision loss from conditions like age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy are expected to double as the nation's 78 million baby boomers reach retirement age.

    The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) is a national nonprofit that expands possibilities for people with vision loss. AFB's priorities include broadening access to technology; elevating the quality of information and tools for the professionals who serve people with vision loss; and promoting independent and healthy living for people with vision loss by providing them and their families with relevant and timely resources. AFB is also proud to house the Helen Keller Archives and honor the more than forty years that Helen Keller worked tirelessly with AFB. For more information visit us online at www.afb.org.
