New Vision Loss Support Group
4th Monday of the month at 10:00am Free
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.
Join the experts at The Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP) as they sit one on one with you and answer all your Medicare questions. Participants can come to the presentation or just make an appointment for a counseling session. See if you qualify for certain Medicare Benefits or just learn more about the Health Insurance. All appointments will be held at the Senior Center. Please call 440-580-3275 to make your appointment.
