Zoom In & Redefine
Zoom In & Redefine - Seniors Sensory Loss Partnership is a partnership between CNIB, Canadian Helen Keller Centre and DeafBlind Ontario Services. We provide training, advocacy and support to seniors with dual sensory loss and their families or caregivers.
Although vision and hearing loss are part of the aging process, the idea that nothing can be done about it is a regrettable, long-held belief. The ‘smile and nod’ reply which many seniors are known for often results in isolation, depression and misunderstandings. Our aim is to redefine how society views seniors with dual vision and hearing loss.
Simple solutions are available including supports which can improve a person’s quality of life, including their ability to socialize with others, engage in activities and maintain independence.
