  • COMBINED LOW VISION AND LOW HEARING GROUP MEETING ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 10.

  • Low Vision Group Meeting

  • On the second Tuesday of each month at 10:00am, join the Low Vision Group. Monthly meetings at the Center, facilitated by Social Worker, Cheryl Lavallee, gives people the opportunity to talk, share concerns and ideas as they navigate their way through life with low vision. Any loss that we experience is difficult to deal with, however, having the support of a group, educating oneself with information, empowers people to live a quality life with the challenges they face. If you or someone you know is experiencing any loss of vision, plan on attending the monthly meeting.

  • LOW HEARING SUPPORT MEETING

  • Learn about techniques for managing your hearing loss in many situations.  If you take your ears for granted, join the group. According to WebMD hearing loss is the third most common health problem in the U.S. It’s also on the rise with nearly 36 million Americans now reporting lost hearing. Certain conditions, including age, illness, and genetics, may contribute to hearing loss. Over several generations, modern life has added a host of ear-damaging elements to the list. These include some medications and plenty of sources of loud, continuous noise. When hearing goes, it may affect quality of life and your relationships. For questions regarding the Low Hearing Group schedule, stop in to the Center or call Susan Bernstein at 508-359-3665.
  • SCHEDULED EVENTS

  • MOVIES – Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m.

  • WHY WATCH MOVIES
    Jack Nicholsen said during one of his Oscar award ceremonies, “they entertain us, they offer hope (and) give traumas; they take us places, we’ve never been, just even for a few moments; they can take us away, when we want to get away; movies inspire us; they challenge us and despite our differences, they are (the) common link to humanity, in all of us.” Movies let us escape from our world, let us experience someone very different from ourselves. Movies can open up the world to us, experiencing new places, new emotions, new relationships, reality and make us laugh and cry. Movies are magic. Join us at the Center for our movie presentations hosted by Joan Lee at 2:00 p.m. on January 4 featuring Indignation and January 18 featuring Sully.

  • Monthly Breakfast

  • On Thursday, January 19 at 8:30 a.m. we will be serving you a delicious breakfast. Be our guest and enjoy a presentation about the Elder Resource Center by Attorney Mary Roque.
    Attorney Roque has been providing monthly legal clinics at the Center for over 6 years. She is happy to speak to you about a new service that she has developed, the Elder Resource Center (a one stop shop for seniors). Sign up for breakfast and information about a new service!
