Dear members and appreciated participants,
the period we are currently in is different from what we were used to so far. With certainty, this period is an opportunity for us to look at ourselves, to set goals again (small and big steps), to do everything for which there has not been enough time so far…
We would like to share with you some of the glimpses, thoughts, anecdotes that some of our members have provided to us from their home environment in these particular circumstances. This is to encourage members of the association and to raise awareness among the general public about how people with deafblindness spend their quarantine days.
Matija is a man of many talents
Matija is very happy to see a personal assistant who helps him with shopping and other tasks. He misses his friends from the Association DLAN, so any news about them means a lot to him. He shortens his time with exercise and crossword puzzles, which he solves with the help of a magnifying glass. He is very successful at this. He likes to play the guitar because he can feel the vibrations and sounds well. He is very precise in cooking. Everything in the kitchen has its place and he always carefully arranges the table for the meal.
