world braille  day

world braile day!!

World brail day!! We celebrate World Braille Day every year on January 4th because it’s Louis Braille’s birthday. He’s the inventor of braille! Louis was born in 1809 in France and became blind after a childhood accident. World Braille Day is a reminder of the importance of accessibility and independence for people who are blind or visually impaired. Today’s reality is that many establishments such as restaurants, banks, and hospitals don’t offer braille versions of their print materials like menus, statements, and bills. Because of this, people with blindness or visual impairments often don’t have the freedom to choose a meal on their own or keep their finances private. This day spreads awareness about braille and other accessible forms of communication. Everyone deserves (and is legally entitled to) the same accommodations and services, regardless of ability. Let’s remember that and do our part to make our workplaces more accessible for everyone. Home instead is proud to celebrate world brail day! Here is a great website if you would like to learn more about braille! https://www.rnib.org.uk/practical-help/reading/braille-and-moon-tactile-codes/learning-braille?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIyPjAwP7u5gIVRLDtCh2T6A9BEAAYASAAEgL_H_D_BwE

International day of disabled persons 2019

Today is December 3rd... that means one thing its international day od people with disabilities. A person is not inherently ‘disabled’…disability is NOT a feature of a person. We say that people have health impairments: some of us need wheelchairs to get around and some of us need seeing-eye dogs or some of us need assistive technology – just like some of us need glasses to read or medication to manage pain or an inhaler to manage asthma. All people have different health impairments at some time in their lives. The difference is that most of the time your health impairment doesn’t stop you from functioning, being included or participating in your community. IDPWD exists to make sure that environmental and social barriers are identified, and to help everyone to work together to overcome them. event day packs are designed to help workplaces, organizations, and agencies to celebrate the International Day of People with Disabilities on the 3rd December. This years theme is "The Future is Accessible"
