If it is one thing I am sure of, it is that people need help and support after losing their sight. Whether you are the sighted supporter or the VIP, everyone can use a helping hand and listening ear from time to time. Today I am joined by Sarah Clark, a local mental health counselor and vision rehabilitation therapist to discuss issues facing individuals and families facing sight loss, what therapy might be like and what is most important during this transition. Join myself and Sarah for a great conversation!
