Hendricks County Senior Services hosts a monthly Vision Loss Support Group on the third Thursday of each month at the senior center. The next meeting is 10:30 a.m. Nov. 21.
Support Group facilitator Deanne Sanders-Below, an In-Home Service coordinator at Hendricks County Senior Services, coordinates the meetings.
The support group may be of benefit to those who have dealt with loss of vision for a period of time as well as those who are just now experiencing the condition.
“Members are able to grieve, explore resources, practice new skills to achieve greater independence and socialize with others who understand their challenges and be inspired toward new goals,” Below said.
Transportation is available through HCSS by calling 745-4303.
Those who would like to stay for lunch are asked to call at least 24 hours in advance. Cost is $2 for seniors ages 60 and older.
No reservations are required to participate in the support group and membership in the senior center is not required. All meetings are confidential and free of charge.
For more information on this support group, call HCSS at 745-4303.
