2023 Winter Virtual Senior Retreat
January 22nd through 28th, 2023
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!
