Mind’s Eye View Peer Support Group
Whether you are new to vision loss, in the process of losing vision, or vision loss has always been a part of your life, you may be interested in “Mind’s Eye View.” This group is a solution-focused peer support group for people with vision loss seeking to live independent, fulfilling, self-supporting lives, fully integrated into society's mainstream. “Mind’s Eye View” will meet monthly from 5:30-6:30 pm on the first Monday of each month beginning August 6, at The Whole Person to discuss issues faced by people who are blind or low vision and explore strategies for achieving and maintaining emotional, psychological and social well-being. Dr. Arnold Abels, PHD, and Sheila Styron, Blindness Low Vision Specialist, The Whole Person will co-facilitate “Mind’s Eye View”, as part of the “Blindness Low Vision Experience.”
The Blindness Low Vision Experience Activities
The Whole Person’s Blindness Low Vision Experience program encourages individuals to enjoy opportunities to achieve greater independence and access to the community through physical and outdoor activities, art and cultural events and other experiences.
Examples of activities include Stretching Without Looking (flexibility and strength class), Bowling Blind (accessible bowling), Out and About with Canines and Canes (conquer your fear of buses), downhill skiing and tandem bicycling. Meets on different dates and times depending on activities.
