Be unable to read certain texts—like prescription directions or ingredient lists

Is it time to move into a retirement home?
Interestingly, the same CAO study mentioned above states that seniors with vision problems are admitted to nursing homes three years earlier than those without vision problems.
It makes sense. Many people with vision loss require specialized, consistent support that they wouldn’t necessarily be able to get from home.
Rather than wait for vision to get worse, it is always prudent to begin considering “next steps” if you or an aging parent are experiencing vision problems and unable to continue living safely on one’s own.
