About us: 

Monteclair is a resource Centre for visually impaired people located in Angers, managed by VYV Care Pays de la  Loire (VYV Care PDL). 

VYV Care PDL belongs to a mutualist group in France, and manages services to support people during all the life in the field of Childhood, Handicap, Health and Ageing people, and provides also medical goods.

Historically, Monteclair is a specialized organization to support children between 0 and 20 with vision impairment in school in mainstream, in daily life, by mobility and daily living skills, technical aids and adapted documentation, low vision support and psychological support.

VYV Care PDL has since developed many services with the competencies of professionals for children, to respond to the needs of all people with vision impairment, in daily life, in vocational and professional activities, but also as regards the increasing number of ageing people, and more generally in the field of rehabilitation. Whatever the age, VYV Care PDL services in vision impairment aim to ensure the autonomy and the quality of life of people with vision impairment.

Monteclair support about 100 children each year, services for adults support more than 400 people. Beyond the setting up of services for adults, VYV Care PDL has developed other services like a centre of information on technical aids (CICAT), as a showroom for testing technical aids. It has also set up CENTICH, national Centre of expertise on new technologies for handicaped people and ageing people, which makes VYV Care PDL the Centre of expertise concerning new technologies for handicaped people in France.

VYV Care PDL has developed Research and Development, especially with Universities for creating new trainings for professionals working in our sector. Its commitment in international activities allows the development of curriculum, professional exchanges, users exchanges, to contribute to more autonomy and quality of life for people living with vision impairment.
