CNIB - Independent Living Skills Training

 
CNIB

Phone:604-431-2160

Brian Mackie, Independent Living Specialist
Suite 100 5055 Joyce Street
Vancouver, British Columbia   V5R 6B2
Vision loss does not mean that cooking, exercising, socializing or enjoying a good book become impossible. A few simple adjustments in and around the house will help ensure that the everyday activities you enjoy are still within reach. Our Fraser Valley Independent Living Specialist instructs people that are blind or have significant vision loss in living as independently as possible. We also teach Braille, keyboarding, adaptive software and how to use a recording device. We can advise people on leisure activities such as obtaining library services for talking books, recreation in the community and games/crafts such as sewing and cards. We do referrals to Orientation & Mobility for white canes, Low Vision assessments for magnifiers, and volunteer services. CNIB maintains a store in Vancouver with many adapted products for people such as Talking watches, magnifiers, large print and Braille products and kitchen aids.
