I am very sorry to hear about your husband's loss of vision. I guess the main thing is you don't want a floor that he can easily slip on. There are plenty of options in tile and stone for non-slip. If you are worrying about him falling, perhaps wall-to-wall carpet with a premium padding would be the best choice. Any other opinions out there?
