Groups

Caregivers Support Group This group welcomes those struggling with the day-to-day care of a loved one. The individual being cared for may be living with the caretaker or in a separate residence. Our facilitator, Debbie Segil, LSW from Greater Lynn Senior Services, leads the group. The group meets on the 4th Monday of the month @ 12:00. The focus is on group support and coping strategies.

Low Vision Support Group This group addresses the needs of those who have experienced a loss of vision that glasses are not able to fully correct. Many members are legally blind but that is not a requirement. The focus of this group is to provide information and education to help people continue to be independent in their daily lives and adjust to their vision challenges. The group meets the third Tuesday of the month @ 10:00.

Hearing Support Group Similar to the vision group, the hearing group focuses on the challenges of navigating in a hearing world. Many members wear hearing aids. Speakers include both hearing and deaf individuals and emphasis is on services available to assist members hearing needs. The group meets the third Wednesday of the month @ 10:00.
