So you’re losing your vision, and family and friends just don’t understand what you are going through. They mean well and want to help, but you can’t turn to them for the kind of guidance and advice you want. What you really need is to talk to someone who has been there.
At CVI, there are support groups available to help you with the emotional, practical and social aspects of vision loss. No matter what condition you are struggling with there are others to help guide you on this journey.
“Adjusting to Vision Loss” Support Group: Thursdays, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
This group is open to anyone who is visually-impaired and their friends and family. The group focuses on life as a newly blind or visually-impaired person. Members discuss coping strategies and tips and also provide encouragement and support to each other. For more information, call 404-875-9011 or email email@example.com.
“Women of Worth, a Women’s Support Group”
This group is open to women who are visually impaired or newly experiencing vision loss. Members discuss coping strategies and tips, and provide encouragement and support to each other as it relates living with vision loss as a woman. The group meets the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at CVI or, if the participant prefers, they can use a call-in number. For more information, call 404-875-9011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
