Jerry Jenkins, an 85 year old African American person with
age related maculopathy, is interested in learning how to be independent while
completing activities of daily living (i.e., cooking, cleaning, and paying
bills). Jerry's wife of 64 years died 4 months ago. Their relationship was
very traditional, therefore, he has not ever "kept house". His visual
acuity is 20/400 OU. His rehabilitation counselor scheduled a low vision
examination 1 month ago. He went to the clinic and received a telescope, a
handheld magnifier, and non-optical devices such as a reading stand, contrast
enhancers, and a flexible arm lamp. Using the Feinbloom Distance Test
Card, his visual acuity with the telescope was 20/30.
Using the Vision Rehabilitation Plan Form write a vision rehabilitation plan
(currently referred to as an individual employment plan) for Jerry's functional
assessment and instruction in the use of his vision unaided and with his devices
for the activities of daily living he needs to learn how to complete
independently to remain in his home.
