Somerset Sight – Volunteering
Sight impairment can happen to anyone and is largely age related. One in 5 people over 75 will suffer. Loss of sight makes even the simplest of tasks difficult - going into one’s garden to see the flowers, making a cup of tea or reading the post. Driving is no longer possible so getting about is challenging especially when there is little public transport. Sight loss is known to increase the risk of depression, loneliness and isolation. Occupying time becomes more difficult when you cannot read, go out for a walk or continue with hobbies such as gardening, puzzles, craft and sewing that have been enjoyed throughout one’s life.
Somerset Sight has run a successful visiting service for more than 20 years whereby a trained volunteer is matched with someone with sight loss. They meet for a couple of hours a week.
