On Tuesday, October 14 at 10:00am, the Low Vision Group. 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 monthly meeting.

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.
