CEDAR RAPIDS BLINDNESS SUPPORT GROUP NOW HAS A TIME AND PLACE

Thursday, March 28, 2019
1 PM to 3 PM
in Sedlacek Hall at Cottage Grove Place
2115 1st Av SE

If you are blind or experiencing loss of vision, life can be pretty scary if you don’t have any tools or connections to deal with the situation. Participating in a support group can help you find that you are not alone, and together we can share tips and tricks we have found to overcome difficulties posed by loss of vision. Though not a part of the Iowa Department for the Blind (IDB), support groups also act as a liaison with that state agency that provides training, equipment, and counseling to those with vision loss.

The Cedar Rapids blindness support group will have its first regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, 28 March 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to approximately 3:00 p.m. in Sedlacek Hall at Cottage Grove Place, 2115 1st Av SE, in Cedar Rapids. We plan to have monthly meetings on the fourth Thursday in the same location from then on.

Programing will be varied, including some of the following:

Jonathan Ice, recently retired from a 21-year career in blindness rehabilitation and himself blind, is spearheading the organization of this group. If you have questions, or want more information about the group, feel free to call him at 319-298-2919, or e-mail him at j k ice 89 at q.com.
