Introducing Low Vision Therapy by Cooperative Home Care


We are proud and excited to introduce our new Low Vision Therapy program!  Available exclusively through Cooperative Home Care, in St. Louis and surrounding counties, “low vision” refers to vision problems that cannot be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery.  If you qualify for Medicare home health and meet the vision criteria, Medicare will pay 100% for this service.
