An Exciting New Program for Ashby Villagers with Changing Vision
in conjunction with Healthier Aging
A new collaboration between the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired and Ashby Village will offer a series of free one-hour virtual sessions beginning April 28 at 2 p.m. and continuing monthly through October. There is no obligation to attend every session, and each topic will be repeated to provide more opportunities to participate.
The LightHouse Connection sessions are not intended to replace Ashby Village’s Low Vision Support Group meetings. Contact email@example.com for more information about the AV Low Vision Support Group.
Sheri Albers, Community Outreach Coordinator for LightHouse, will conduct the first session, LightHouse Orientation, and she promises that those who attend will hear about the wide variety of programs available. “We hope people will realize you can be independent, self-reliant and on an equal plane to your sighted peers in every aspect of your life from cooking, working on your computer, using Uber and riding mass transit."
At the LightHouse Orientation (April 28 and August 25), Sheri will tell her personal story and the struggles she faced as her vision deteriorated. “I want people not to be afraid and to know what exciting solutions are available,” she says. She’ll describe how the LightHouse can help take vision challenges out of the equation and provide alternative techniques.
