Instrumental Lighthouse Family High

The Cape Henry Lighthouse was built in 1792, along the Chesapeake Bay, just north of Virginia Beach. It was the first lighthouse authorized by the government.George Washington chose Laban Goffigan to be the first keeper of the lighthouse. Preservation Virginia has been protecting and maintaining the lighthouse since 1930.The lighthouse has been repaired through the years and was instrumental for lighting the waterways near Virginia Beach. Enjoy a visit the lighthouse in the spring, summer or fall.A second lighthouse was constructed in 1881 adjacent to the original lighthouse after the stability of the original lighthouse was in question.

Abstract: This review highlights the literature on the function and adjustment process of family members of persons with adult-onset vision loss. The majority of the literature has focused on the unique role that the family plays in providing both instrumental and emotional support to adults with low vision. In contrast, the impact of low vision on the psychosocial adjustment of the family has been largely understudied. The review concludes with a discussion of the implications for clinical practice, along with directions for future research on the family within the context of low vision rehabilitation.

Although extensive research has documented the emotional and functional changes that accompany vision loss for persons with low vision (see, for example, Dreer, Elliott, Berry, Fletcher, & Swanson, 2008; Dreer, Elliott, Fletcher, & Swanson, 2005), little attention has been paid to the study of the adjustment process of these persons' family members. This lack of attention is surprising, since family members are often responsible for providing various degrees of instrumental and emotional support for persons with low vision (Cimarolli & Boerner, 2005; Reinhardt, 1996, 2001; Reinhardt, Boerner, & Horowitz, 2006).

In this review, we highlight the existing literature examining the function and adjustment process of family members of persons with adult-onset vision loss. Relevant peer-reviewed empirical studies and critical reviews were identified through MEDLINE and PsycINFO (EBSCO) databases. 041b061a72
