Phyllis Slater


Phyllis retired from her eldercare services support after learning she was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a degenerative disease of the retina that could eventually lead to blindness.  Further, the doctor explained the progress of the disease is unpredictable:  No one can predict whether her field of vision would narrow and stabilize, stop at some point reduced to only shadows or might leave her totally blind.

What’s in store for her?  That was fifteen years ago and after finding resources and support, Phyllis now provides support services to those with low vision. For families and patients, take advantage of her resource guide located
on this website. After 25 years as word processor and now unable to read the computer, Phyllis was determined to find other options. Attending a learning center for the blind offered training on computer screen reading programs, basic braille and cane mobility skills. Contact Phyllis with any questions you have and simplify your life.
