Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Few falls prevention interventions for older adults are accessible for those with low vision. We pilot tested a visually accessible version of an evidence-based intervention for use with veterans receiving services in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Southeastern Blind Rehabilitation Center.
