The Low Vision Support Group has been in existence for 16 years and has about 24 members. It is open to any person who is living with low vision, regardless of the type of eye disease. The group meets 1-2:30 p.m. the second Monday of the month in the Westminster Room at Faith Presbyterian Church, 16000 N. Del Webb Blvd. The goal of the group is “To be a sharing support system, to identify resources, to provide social opportunities and to discuss strategies and tactics for living with low vision for individuals and their family members.”
Annually, the group collectively determines the types of speakers, resources and needs of the group. Transportation to get to the meetings was the number one concern this year. The vast majority of the members cannot drive and those who still can know their time for driving is limited and they will not transport others.
Mary Ann Keogh Hoss is serving as the volunteer coordinator of the group. For more information about the group, contact her at 623-266-4402.
Northwest Valley Connect provides rides to seniors, veterans and persons with disabilities in the Northwest Valley since 2014. Call the NVC call Center at 623-282-9300.
