Vision Australia is hosting a webinar that will help workers in the aged care sector learn how they can support clients to live more independently and continue doing the things they love.
People with vision loss are three times more likely to suffer depression and twice as likely to experience a decrease in social independence.
For those working as RAS or ACAT assessors, this session will build your knowledge and confidence to discuss relevant supports and goals with vision impaired clients when completing assessments.
The webinar will cover:
- common eye conditions and their impact on vision
- impacts of vision loss on daily living activities
- daily living strategies, aids and equipment useful for people with blindness or low vision
- selecting the relevant service types when referring vision impaired clients for appropriate services.
Health professionals may be eligible for Continuing Professional Development points when attending this session.
Date: Wednesday September 15, 2021
Time: 4pm-5pm AEST (2pm in Perth)
