Sight Loss, Home and the Built Environment
It is estimated that one in five people aged 75 and over and one in two aged 90 and over are living with sight loss that has a significant impact on their daily lives.
These pages provide guidance resources, reports and individual stories that explore the issues facing people with sight loss in their daily lives and show the importance of well-designed housing, practical advice and support, social connections and appropriate technology.
The Housing LIN has an excellent track record working with housing providers, health and adult social care commissioners of housing that supports independent living for people with sight loss. For bespoke advice to help your organisation draw on the lessons highlighted on these pages and/or to talk through how the Housing LIN can support with your operational and/or strategical plans, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our consultancy pages.
