Charles Bonnet Syndrome

Wednesday, March 23
11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Location: Hybrid

Charles Bonnet Syndrome is a condition that causes a person whose vision has started to deteriorate to see things that aren’t real (hallucinations). The hallucinations may be simple patterns, or detailed images of events, people, or places. They’re only visual and don’t involve hearing things or any other sensations.

Dr. Helene Bradley will discuss the clinical aspects of CBS, followed by a discussion amongst participants led by Doreen Holmes about how the condition has affected them.

For those attending in person, a light lunch will be provided at no cost to the participants.

  • Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) through the National Library service which allows for free
    downloads of Talking Books.
  • Bookshare, an app that allows you to listen to books on a variety of devices.

We will discuss the pluses and minuses of each service and walk you through the steps to connect with the ones that you are interested in.
