About

Vision Mate volunteers provide one-on-one sighted assistance and companionship for a person who has sight loss. Activities include: recreational activities, reading, organizing, walking, assisting with errands or outings, social visiting.

Leisure Mates/Vision Mates usually visit a community member with sight loss for one or two hours a week, in the individual’s home or another suitable environment, at a mutually convenient time.

Why does it matter?

  • For some people with sight loss, day-to-day activities, such as reading the mail or running a quick errand, can be difficult or even impossible.
  • Too many try not to burden their families and experience daily feelings of isolation and loneliness, as a result.
