How Blinded Veterans Help Themselves And Others To A Better Quality Of Life In the U.S., both National Pig Day and Peanut Butter Lover's Day are observed onMarch 1 --hopefully, not at the same time in the same place. (NAPS)--According to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) statistics, there are over 130,000 legally blind veterans in America. Every year, another sever- al thousand are added to the number either because of combat injuries, age, illness or other factors. What's Being Done Fortunately, they're not simply left in the dark. All over the country, the VA has set up residential and outpatient centers where former military persons who' have impaired vision can learn to lead more independent, pleasant and productive lives. There are two basic kinds of facilities. The Blind Rehabilitation Programs sup- port blind and low-vision veterans and . ~ '!a'cff~re-duty sdiTi~ethembers in regain- ...............................

These places also support family and --Anni~ Tucker significant others to better understand visual impairment and foster the provi- sion of appropriate support, to assist in enhancing home environments and to reduce caregiver burden. The Visual Impairment Services Outpatient Rehabilitation (VISOR) pro- grams use a team approach to provide services based on a thorough assess- ment of the veteran's strengths, needs and perdonal goals. Veterans and their families are en- couraged to identify these goals and provide ongoing feedback regarding progress. To enhance the quality of life for vet- erans and servicemembers experiencing Wade Davis and BVA help ensure VA facilities for blinded veterans are able to provide the best possible care and training. vision loss, the Blinded Veterans Associ- ation (BVA) works with VA to help keep these places up to par. Recently, that or- ganization's Training Coordinator, Wade Davis, conducted a comprehensive and individualized Veterans Care Review at each of the 13 Blind Rehabilitation Cen- ters nationwide. He is currently doing the same with the VISOR programs. What Davis Does Over several days, Davis visits each facility and meets separately with the staff and the veterans involved. He con- siders various aspects of the programs: orientation and mobility, living skills, manual skills, low-vision therapy, com- puter access training, tow-vision clinic, optometry, eye clinic, ophthalmology, recreation therapy, social work, psy- chology, nursing, diabetic education, and pharmacy. He also talks to the Vi- sual Impairment Services Team (VIST) Coordinators individually. Davis' aim is to evaluate the full curriculum of care and to share findings with staff and the administration to promote and expand each facility's successful procedures and generally make the .facility as pro- ductive and safe as it can be for blinded veterans. He also holds information sessions for the veterans and provides literature about BVA. Davis' BVA evaluations have brought about a number of improvements to blind rehabilitation services, such as making sure each of the facilities has the training andequipmem it needs. What BVA Does All this is just one way BVA fulfills the mission it's pursued since the end of World War II: to promote the welfare of blinded veterans so that, notwith- ~ffnding'fl~eif dtsab'flities, they may take their rightful place in the community and work with their fellow citizens to- ward the creation of a peaceful world. Through its free service programs, re- gional groups, resources, and advoca- cy before the legislative and executive branches of government, it makes life better for blinded veterans. Where To Learn More Because BVA advocates for all blind- ed veterans, whether they are members of the organization or not, and regard- less of bow their visual impairment occurred, veterans old and young and who experience vision loss can call BVA at (800) 669-7079, or visit www.bva. org, to get connected with the rehabil- itative services they may need and have earned.
