Vision Mate volunteers provide sighted assistance to a person who is blind or partially sighted. Activities may include reading, organizing things around the home, walking, assisting with errands, outings or social visits.

Vision Mates usually visit a neighbour with sight loss for one or two hours a week in the person’s home or another suitable place, at a mutually convenient time.

To hear from a Vision Mate match, listen to this CBC interview.
