Seminars@Hadley are the best! The technology seminars are especially relevant; the information I acquired helped me learn about my iPhone.

Seminars@Hadley presents

Putting the "Grand" Back in Grandparenting

Date: Thursday, September 10
Time: 2:00 PM CDT 19:00 GMT

Kid reading with grandpa who is using a magnifier

Grandparenting has been described as being one of the most joyous experiences of growing older. However, grandparents facing the challenges of age-related vision loss often feel their joy diminished by fear and worry:

While concerns are valid and real, they need not rob grandparents of treasured moments with grandchildren.

Just in time for National Grandparents Day, join Seminars@Hadley as three Hadley instructors share suggestions and resources for putting the "grand" back in grandparenting after vision loss.

Instructors Grandma Sharon Howerton, blind and grandmother of 5; Debbie Worman, Family Education instructor; and Jennifer Ottowitz, Certified Vision Rehabilitation Therapist all have had extensive experience working with grandparents in a variety of settings.

Ed Haines, a member of Hadley’s Seminars team, will moderate this 60-minute seminar. A question and answer session will be included as part of the seminar.

This seminar is an audio presentation. Space in this seminar is limited. Please only register if you know you are available to attend so that others are not closed out. To register for the seminar, select the "Registration" link below.
