Have changes in vision impacted your daily life?
Seniors may experience changes in vision from varying conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Emotional effects can accompany even mild vision loss, ranging from fear of what a progressive condition might mean in the future to questions about how to continue everyday activities like reading, home maintenance, cooking, and hobbies with a vision loss. This monthly support group will address all of these topics and much more in a supportive, informative environment. Each month Sandy Krems, volunteer with the National Federation of the Blind will emphasize a specific discussion topic.
Meetings are now done by teleconference. The next meeting is October 27, and the topic is computer access and other assistive technology for the visually impaired. To participate, call (701) 802-5235,and enter the access code 6529635 when prompted.
For those who are unable to dial or enter the access code, please contact the Senior Center by Friday the week before the meeting, and Sandy will call and connect you directly into the conference call. If you are unable to participate due to time constraints, a recording of the meeting can be sent but only if there is a request in advance.
