ARE YOU NEW TO THE COA? TRY AN EXERCISE CLASS OF YOUR CHOICE AND GET A FEEL OF WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT.
On Tuesday, November 12 at 10:00am, the Low Vision Group invites you to a special presentation from Scott V. Krug, President of New Enhanced Vision. Mr. Krug will speak on the newest technologies for helping people with Macular Degeneration and other low vision conditions. The group which meets monthly at the Center and 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 meeting on Nov. 12 at 10:00.

Bermuda Cruise-Fourth annual cruise week May 23-May 30, 2014! People ask why do you keep going on this cruise and my response is because it is easy. Because for some it may be their last BIG trip in their life journey. Because it is relaxing. Because going as a group is fun and friendships are developed and mostly because it is easy. There are no planes, no parking issues, simply leave from the Center and begin vacation the minute you get on the ship! That’s why! Interested in finding out more about the Boston to Bermuda Cruise, stop in for information or bring your passport and deposit and we can book it right away!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY On your birthday we wish you much pleasure and joy;
We hope all of your wishes come true.
May each hour and minute of your special day be shared with the staff of the COA!
The aging process provides us with many challenges and often we experience a variety of losses. With every day we have to make choices to do or not do many things. These choices may range from profound to trivial and each one has an effect that makes our lives more fulfilling or less fulfilling, more balanced or less balanced, that make our process of living more effective or less effective. Life coaching helps you learn how to make choices that create an effective, balanced and fulfilling life. Deborah A. Merriam, Ed.D. holds a master’s in counseling and a doctorate in behavioral studies. She is the founder of Medfield Counseling Associates and has been in practice since 1980.
