We have the great privilege of helping patients and families re-build their lives. It's extraordinarily meaningful work and the reason we greet the day with optimism and anticipation. Our hallmark is to carefully listen to patients and innovatively serve them. This is true of every employee, from support staff and leadership, to clinicians and care providers.
ABVI is a not-for-profit, 501c3 organization. Founded over a hundred years ago, we work with individuals struggling with their loss of sight, to help them adjust to their new reality. Through our low-vision clinic we evaluate the extent of vision loss and then provide services to help our clients reach their goals. Whether it be assistive technology to improve the ability to carry out daily activities, or in-home rehabilitation to help with daily living skills, or one-on-one supportive counseling to help with feelings of isolation, anxiety and depression or peer support groups to provide encouragement, education and friendships, our specialists will help our clients build a plan that will help them become more independent and live their lives with confidence and dignity.
We serve clients of all ages. As the potential for visual impairment increases with age, most of our clients are senior citizens. No one is turned away from our services due to an inability to pay.
In January of 2020 ABVI became an independent subsidiary of Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, allowing both organizations to share knowledge and resources to provide an exceptional service experience for our clients and their families.
Restoring hope and freedom through rehabilitation.
Mary Free Bed values diversity and inclusion among patients, families and staff. We strive to hire people who reflect the communities we serve. Our employees will serve all patients, families and each other with dignity and respect.
