Helping grandmother cope with loss of sight due to aging
My grandmother lives alone in an independent living senior apartment complex and, like so many older adults, is suffering from isolation and boredom due to COVID. Unfortunately also her eyesight has worsened over the past few months so she is not able to do many of the things she likes to do, like drive to errands, read books, and play cards with friends at the apartment complex. (She lives in out of state in a place where that kind of congregation is allowed.)
I would like to do what I can to help reduce her isolation and boredom. It might help if I could suggest some objects that could help her do activities she likes to do. Is there anything you could suggest that would help with the cards or books? Larger print cards? Is there a thing about what color contrast is easier to see? She's pretty good with technology but I don't think she could manage loading audiobooks at this point — it would probably have to be a separate and easy to use device. Or if there are suggestions for other new activities for someone with poor eyesight that could be good too.
