Woman helping a man to find his chairHere are some tips on helping blind and visually impaired people while finding a seat:
  1. Don't guide a blind or visually impaired person backwards into a seat
  2. When guiding your partner to a seat, explain what type of seat it is –  chair, sofa, armchair, stool, etc.
  3. Have them release your arm and place their hand on the back or the seat of the chair
  4. Your partner should then be able to estimate the height of the seat and sit safely at their own pace
