“I would like to take this time to thank [Susan] for all that [she has] done for me. When I was in need, you were there. Thank you for coming into my home, teaching me to function after a stroke in my right eye left me vision impaired. I was frighten and unsure of myself and my judgment. You assured me and taught me several things that made my life much easier such as recognizing food in my cabinets and refrigerator, giving me a white tip cane (teaching me how to use it), a timer with large print, a magnifying glass, lg. black markers, & a lg. print calender, just to name a few. All of which has made my life a little easier.
What I am thankful for most is that you taught me how to recognized my insulin and other prescription & medicines so that I would not take the wrong amount or wrong one. This skill really did help save my life.
I also appreciated how you assisted me in downloading forms and filling them out to get the medicines that I needed.
Thank you again and to the Greater Detroit Agency for the Blind and Visually Impaired. You are a great and caring Therapist.

“Greater Detroit Agency for the Blind & Visually Impaired was there for me at perhaps the most difficult time of my life. When I was 53 years old I suddenly lost most of my vision. It was devastating. I had been working full time in the medical field and living on my own. GDABVI was there from the beginning of my new journey and helped me to get back to the business of life. What I thought I could never do again – including basic daily living skills – I am doing effortlessly. No doubt it has not been easy but with learning new adaptive techniques, how to use a long cane for mobility and blindness adjustment skills, I am getting my independence back! I hope to one day help others who lose their vision – the way I was helped! Thank you,”
