If you are struggling with vision problems due to degenerative eye disease, life can become increasingly difficult. When every day tasks, like pouring a cup of coffee or separating colored laundry, become too much to handle because of progressively worsening eyesight, you often have no choice but to be admitted to a care facility or hire a live-in nurse. Great Lakes Caring Home Health is now giving you a new choice to continue living independently in your place of residence by offering our Low Vision Care Program.
Low Vision Care is a clinician-developed program, backed by more than 12 years of research, which utilizes a significant range of home health disciplines to help you regain control of your life devastated by the effects of low vision.
