Our goal, through access to and training on appropriate digital technology, to improve medical and mental health care through technological modalities, to create linkages to virtual and in-person social, recreational and educational programs that will enhance connectedness and interaction.

The results of this research, supported by private foundations, will provide a blueprint and replicable model for others in the vision rehabilitation space. It will also demonstrate to policymakers the vital importance of support for accessible technology to ensure the health and wellbeing of blind and visually impaired older adults.
