Visually impaired invited to meetings

Lighthouse of Collier Center for Blindness and Vision Loss invites all who are blind or visually impaired to attend a support group from 10-11:30 a.m. every Wednesday at the center, 2685 Horseshoe Drive in Naples. Facilitator Rick Hart encourages attendees to share the challenges they face and the techniques they find helpful in managing those challenges. Attendees feel less isolated as they make connections with others who can relate to their situation. Friends and family members who care for a blind or visually impaired friend or loved one can also benefit from the group. Reservations are not required.

The nonprofit also hosts a brown bag lunch and program at 11 a.m. on the third Tuesday of every month for visually impaired people and their caregivers. The next program is Aug. 15. Guests should bring their own lunch and are welcome to stay afterward for games and social hour.

For brown bag lunch reservations or more information about programs and services, call Lighthouse of Collier at 430-3934 or visit www.lighthouseofcollier.org. ¦
