Low Vision Support Group Meets
Add To Calendar
Poetry and memory are the subjects of this month’s Low Vision Support Group which meets on Thursday, April 21 from 10:15 to 12 at the Thompson Senior Center. The group recently began meeting on the third Thursday of the month as part of the Vermont Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired Peer Assisted Learning Support (PALS) program. It is an opportunity for those living with low vision, as well as friends and family who are affected, to share experiences, challenges, and successes. Occasionally, there are speakers on topics such as technology and independent living skills.
Memory skills are important for those who are aging, but even more important for those living with low vision. During this month’s low vision support group, we will learn and share some tactics for developing and strengthening memory. April is also national poetry month so we’ll be celebrating by sharing some favorite poems as well as the use of poetry to improve memory. If you or a loved one lives with low vision, you are welcome to attend.
The Low Vision Support Group meets at Thompson Senior Center, 99 Senior Lane, Woodstock. It is open to all ages. For more information about attending, call Melinda Underwood, CVRT, at 877-350-8840.
