Life of a Sighted Care Giver

I enjoyed sharing Ms Cordell's article's concerning the blind with my blind man. The other side of the coin is the care giver. I have been one for 17 years. Oh my what a re-teaching on my perspective of sight.


First, I had too have the diligence & fortitude of mind body and soul, the commitment that I will not allow this person to be abused or robbed. I also had to stimulate his mind and physical activities.

I dearly love the statement "It's Over There." Oh my, I had to retrain my brain in "it's two steps to your left and one step back." Then I had to reverse my thought process. When you are looking at that person, you have to reverse yourself to explain where they need to go. Took awhile but I mastered it.

Would love to hear from others on insights they may have.
