Vision Mate volunteers provide sighted assistance to a person who is blind or partially sighted. Activities may include reading, organizing things around the home, walking, assisting with errands, or heading on an outing or social visit.
Vision Mates usually visit a neighbour with sight loss for one or two hours a week in the person’s home or another suitable place, at a mutually convenient time.
To register for the Vision Mate program, contact Tracy Holland, Program Lead, Community Outreach and Home-based Support at Tracy.Holland@cnib.ca or call 613-542-4975 ext. 5094.
