Rees, G.; Saw, C.; Larizza, M.; Lamoureux, E.; Keeffe, J.
British Journal of Visual Impairment, v25 n2 p155-168 2007
This qualitative study investigates the views of clients with low vision and vision rehabilitation professionals on the involvement of family and friends in group-based rehabilitation programs. Both groups outlined advantages and disadvantages to involving significant others, and it is essential that clients are given the choice. Future work is needed to examine the uptake, process and outcomes of rehabilitation programs in which clients are able to invite family and friends. (Contains 3 tables.)
