Event Details

In this presentation we’ll learn more about the relationship between low vision and falls. What can you or your loved ones do to prevent a fall?

Presenter: Jean Kenevan, Rehabilitation Specialist, Office for the Blind and Visually Impaired (OBVI), Department of Health Services

In addition to being a Rehabilitation Specialist, Jean is also a Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist and the vision expert for the Stepping On falls prevention workshops in her territory. Her office is located in Appleton, Wisconsin. Rehabilitation services are provided by the OBVI to help individuals who are blind or visually impaired to achieve their own goals of independent living. OBVI staff visit individuals in their homes, conduct group trainings, and teach techniques and technologies for use in daily living (home management, personal care, Orientation & Mobility, and communications). These specialized skills allow individuals to adapt and adjust to vision loss, enabling them to live as independently as possible.
