2021 Virtual Senior Retreat
September 19th through 25th, 2021
Anywhere and Everywhere
This virtual retreat focuses on promoting a sense of wellbeing and self-confidence despite living with newly acquired vision loss, and/or lifelong blindness. Our collective experience has taught us, that learning about blindness from competent blind people, while sharing the camaraderie of fellow retreat members, strengthens personal growth and guides seniors to advocate for themselves. Participants can look forward to receiving training in basic skills in adaptive techniques, development of new strategies for solving problems, an introduction to valuable resources, all to be better able to determine for themselves, what steps they can take to Live The Life They Want. We cannot overstate the positive impact an individual will experience as a member of a group of seniors, working together, sharing the life-changing activities in a retreat of this nature; just ask one of our recent graduates!
Participants must be legally blind or have a serious change of vision. They must have a strong desire to learn nonvisual techniques taught by competent blind instructors. You do not have to be a senior or a member of the National Federation of the Blind to apply.
