Overall, it is a good idea to keep your home simple and clean, this is important especially for those with a visual impairment. Wide corridors and doorways create ease of access and mobility, whilst simplicity enables you to find and use items and appliances easily. Long-handled grabs help reach objects off the floor without bending. The internet is home to a wide range of gadgets that can make life easier for those with an impairment or disability, everything from kitchen utensils to specialised cushions.
Like in the house, the yard should also be kept clean and simple. Invest in plenty of lighting to ensure it is easy to find your way from your car into your home of a nighttime. Pathways should be smooth and even, any uneven ground has the potential to be a tripping hazard for the visually impaired. If you don’t know someone, and can’t yourself, it is a good idea to hire a lawn and garden professional to ensure your lawn and garden is neat and tidy, creating an ease of access whilst making your yard look great!
