Social Support and Well-being in Adults Who Are Visually Impaired
Abstract: This study explored multiple aspects of social support and their links to the well-being of working-age adults with visual impairments. Instrumental help from family members was the most frequent type of positive support that was received, and underestimation of the participants' capabilities was the most frequent type of negative support that was received. Less-optimal well-being appeared to be linked with experiencing a lack of support and with receiving only negative support.
