It is open the first Friday, and the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 9:00 a.m. to noon, and is free for those 18 or older who do not have insurance. To schedule an appointment please call 513-207-6140.
Clovernook’s Low Vision Services provide individuals with vision loss the opportunity to try various low vision devices free of charge to determine what works best for their individual needs. Once a device has been selected, our staff will work to acquire this device at the lowest cost to our consumers.
Clovernook Center offers individual Case Management, as well as Low Vision Support Groups to introduce our blind or visually impaired individuals to others in their community who face similar challenges. Friends and family are welcome to attend these Support Groups who meet the fourth Thursday of every month at 10:00.m. and are led by Clovernook’s Vocational Habilitation Coordinator. The goal is to help individuals be self-sufficient and full participants in their communities.
