Center-Based Services

Regaining Independence

Imagine being totally dependent on others for your basic, everyday needs. Everything you want or need depends on the help of someone else. Most people who are blind or visually impaired will tell you that their loss of independence is as devastating as their loss of vision.  Now imagine specifically designed programs to help individuals with vision loss learn how to regain their independence.

At our rehabilitation center, located at 7225 Woodland Drive in Indianapolis, we provide guidance and hands-on, customized training in everything from daily living skills to state-of-the-art assistive technology. We also offer programs on pursuing educational and career goals.  Learn safe navigation from our orientation and mobility instructors. Learn personal management skills like cooking and cleaning. Receive expert-level instruction on computers, smartphones, software and other devices. The programs are constantly changing to keep up with the latest technology.

Support is provided by generous donors of the Bosma Visionary Opportunities Foundation.
