Direct Service

The Task Force on Direct Services to Patients is responsible for developing and coordinating local programs in which Lion volunteers provide direct services to Lions LOVRNET patients. These services include providing transportation to doctor’s office or clinic visits for patients who need it; trouble shooting and when appropriate solving patient problems with their use of vision assistive equipment in the home; helping make safety and adaptive modifications to the patient’s home environment as recommended by the low vision therapist; helping patients gain access to services available to the blind and visually impaired; organizing and leading local low vision patient informational and support groups; and helping patients identify sources of financial assistance to help pay for needed vision assistive equipment.
