The 14th is not a Friday. Do you mean the 11th?
Here is our story in brief: Bill (age 63) has been losing his vision since 2006 and can no longer drive. He still does not have a diagnosis. We are going to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore in April to see a specialist. Hopefully, we will have some good news, but at least we would like to know what this is and what to expect. It acts like Macular Degeneration, but the doctors at Dean McGee in OKC say its not anything they have ever seen. Anyway, we heard about support groups from Hadley School for Blind and have been looking for one for the last six months.
Are you a group for both the person with the vision loss and family members? What does your group do at this meetings? What kind of attendance do you have? Is it a mixed age or a specialized group?
Thank you for all your help. I hate to ask so many questions, but it's going to be hard enough to get him there unless I can assure him that it will do him some good! I am currently taking an online course from Hadley School for the Blind on Self-Help Groups and feel it would be good for both of us. (http://www.hadley.edu/)
