Hawkeye Valley to host vision loss program

Posted:

(Independence-KWWL) Hawkeye Valley Area Agency on Aging will be hosting an informational presentation about services available for people with vision loss.

Barb Weigel, Project Specialist from the Iowa Department for the Blind, will present information about the Iowa Department for the Blind's independent living program, what devices are available through the aids and devices store and the talking books program available through the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.

The program will be held on Friday, April 3 at 11:30 a.m. at the Buchanan County Senior Center, 400 5th Avenue in Independence. This presentation is for everyone, not just for people who are losing their vision.  Services through the Iowa Department for the Blind are free, confidential and available statewide.  A person does not need to be legally blind to qualify.
