A Family Experience

November 2 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Vision loss has a profound effect on the person who experiences it. It also requires a big adjustment for your family members and friends.

Many times family members find that they become the primary source of transportation, take on extra duties such as managing the finances and shopping, and struggle with the emotional aspects of having someone they care about suffer such a major loss.

On the other side, people with vision loss often feel misunderstood, can sometimes feel like family members and friends are doing too much (or too little) to help, and may feel uncomfortable bringing up these issues. At the heart of it, many people just need help figuring out how to better communicate their needs and feelings, set boundaries, and develop the skills to adapt to vision loss in a more healthy way.

On Tuesday, November 2, Christine Grover, a family therapist, will offer some advice for improving communication and how to most effectively talk about your needs and frustrations. Afterward, we will enjoy a family-style lunch at a local restaurant, during which you will have the opportunity to meet others who are in a similar situation to yours.
