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.
Join us on Thursday, September 22nd at 10am for our support group. 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. This meeting we will be joined by Tina Roberts, M.S., CCC-A from Speech-Language and Hearing Associates of Greater Boston. You will find strategies to keep lines of communication open with friends and family. We are also offering hearing screenings following the meeting. For questions and to sign up for the meeting/screenings, stop in to the Center or call Susan Bernstein at 508-359-3665.
