I think Gerald's assessment is right on. What wasn't mentioned is that in some States, other agencies, not blindness specific, will take up the slack.

Every time I hear this I get more and more saddened and disgusted. I can't believe the most advanced nation in the world treats their citizens this way in 2019.

Well your lucky you received help from your local blind foundation. In many states, if you are a blind senior, the blindness rehab agencies or blindness commission will tell you to take a hike and not bother them, because they have few, if any services to offer older folks who are losing their vision.

Well Dave:

I would have to agree with you that the older a person is ,when they
go blind, the harder it is to adjust. If I had been 80, instead of
60, and not had the resources of our local blind foundation, I may not
have adapted as easily.

As for me, to keep learning is to keep the brain cells functioning at
the peak of their ability.
