Subject: [visionexchange] Checklist for Retirement Living with vision loss


Hi Everyone,

Here is a checklist for seniors with vision loss who are moving to a
retirement living facility.  It helps them to be aware of what environmental
features and staff services can make or break their experience of living
there with vision loss.  If you currently work in a retirement living
situation, these points would help you to gage how "low-vision friendly"
your place is.
