The blind living on their own

Ok, I've googled this and such but I can't quite get the answer I'm looking for.

I have some idea of how a household with a blind person would be set up, but I'm not sure just how much the individual would be able to do while in their home.

How well can a person, blind all their life, take care of themself? Can they clean up? Can they cook at all? What can they do without help? I know it would probably vary with the person- but how would a blind person get by? Would they have assistance? Like a personal aide or something?

What sort of things would a person be free to do in a the house? My character would want to be active much of the time but I want to know how much of the activites would be plausible.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
