Sight loss help and advice

jl1980jl1980 Member Posts: 1 Listener
Hello

I’m new to the forum and writing on behalf of my father. 
Over the past couple of years he’s been losing his mobility and now he’s rapidly losing his sight which he is struggling to adjust to.

He doesn’t have a friendship circle and is quite isolated.

He’s currently spending most of his days literally doing nothing and the impact on his mental health is quite obvious. 

He used to love puzzles, stamp collecting and watching old films and isn’t able to do any of these currently.

I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions on things (tech or aids etc) that help make life easier with sight loss? It’s happening quite suddenly and he’s not had time to get used to it. He’s sadly also not very tech-savvy (he got his first ever mobile phone just two years ago and still hasn’t worked it out!).

Please help with any suggestions
