The "Braille Institute's Kitchen Confidence" Program teaches visually impaired or low vision seniors how to safely use knifes, kitchen appliances such as microwaves etc.

A list of useful tips for making it easier for seniors to get around in the kitchen easier can be found on the Braille Institute's website.

The Braille Institute has several other resources for those with age related vision loss including the "Braille Library" and the "Telephone Reader" Program.
