Kittay Senior Apartments: The Smart Choice for Seniors with Low Vision
Kittay is an ideal choice for the visually impaired. Not only are dining and housekeeping services available, Kittay also offers accommodations designed to enhance the daily living of seniors with all levels of visual impairment.
Throughout the building there are environmental modifications that make living easier, like:
- Color-contrasting paint in hallways and doorways
- Enhanced contrast lighting in rooms and hallways
- Talking elevators
- Floors alternate colors
- Safety bars along the hallway make navigation much easier
- Low vision machines available for tenant use.
And, you’ll find the staff at Kittay supportive and sensitive to seniors with low vision issues.
Because vision loss can be progressive, Kittay facilitates educational presentations on normal and abnormal changes in vision. Support service suggestions and referrals are also available for tenants.
Low-vision seniors will find themselves welcomed at all Kittay activities. For example, to enhance the participation of low-vision residents in the choir, the director purchased special magnifying glasses to make it easier to read along. For card games like blackjack, we have large cards. Activities are listed on a bulletin board with extra-large lettering to encourage low-vision elders to fully participate in Kittay’s activities.
