A diagnosis of disability raises the prospect of a life of dependency which, in turn, may create a mood of despair and despondency. However, modern technology, disability aids and specialist accommodation all mean that this no longer needs to be the case.
But where to turn for help and advice?
How to find out what is best suited for someone’s current and future circumstances?
For the first time there is now a website specially designed for the Jewish community by Jewish Blind & Disabled to provide answers to these vital questions. Simple Yes/No answers, in easy to understand categories illustrated overleaf, will not only answer questions already identified but also address issues not even considered yet.
From major modifications to your home to the lighting of Shabbat candles, a report tailored to individual circumstances will provide a list of products and services designed to help someone maintain their vital independence.
