Challenges of Being Visually Impaired

 

If you are visually impaired or know someone who is blind or visually impaired, there are certain challenges that you will face which will definitely limit your ability to live your life. These challenges include:

Interaction with the Environment

Not knowing where you are and having difficulties getting from one place to another will definitely lead to your movement becoming restricted and will reduce your interaction with your environment.

Social Interaction

Dealing with sighted can be somewhat difficult for the visually impaired. There is normally some awkwardness or apprehension on the part of sighted people when dealing with the blind which makes it very hard for the blind to interact with them.

Employment

It is very difficult for the visually impaired to find adequate employment. Almost three-thirds of all blind people are unemployed because there are insufficient employment opportunities for them.

Finances

Due to the fact that they cannot find suitable employment, the visually impaired normally do not have the finances that they need to pay for their daily living expenses which is a major issue for those who require long term care.

Long term care for the Visually Impaired

 

Long term care is the ongoing care that is given to the visually impaired either in their home, in a nursing facility or in a care home due to the fact that they are visually impaired and therefore are not capable of taking care of themselves in the simplest manner such as taking a shower, eating, walking, and going to the bathroom. If you have a loved one that is visually impaired and you have to take care of that person, it will definitely put a tremendous strain on you, emotionally, physically and financially. The financial strains are normally the most difficult ones to deal with.

 

The Solution - Equity release 

 

If you, your parent, grandparent, spouse or another loved one is over the age of 55 years and owns a property, this could be the solution to deal with the financial aspects of long term care for the visually impaired. With equity release, you can release money that is tied up in your home. That money can easily be used to fund long term care. If adaptations need to be made to the home, you can use this money to make those adaptations.
