Free Independent Living Classes for the Visually Impaired
Classes being offered here in The Villages

Imagine closing your eyes and pouring a hot cup of coffee, dialing the phone, writing a check, or cooking a meal.  Daily tasks that are simple to perform with vision can seem nearly impossible to complete if you are blind or have low vision. 

Independent Living Skills classes for adults with blindness or visual impairment are now being offered in The Villages.  Instruction will be provided in the following:

  • Adjustment to Blindness
  • Communications
  • Basic Anatomy of the Eye
  • Personal Management
  • Home Management
  • Recreation and Leisure
  • Advocacy
  • Orientation and Mobility
  • Low Vision

Classes are held twice a week at various locations in Lake and Sumter Counties.  All classes are free.
For more information or to register
for classes call New Vision for Independence at 352-435-5040.
