The city of Palm Coast is continuing to grow its programming at the Palm Coast Community Center, starting with a new support group for the visually impaired.

The program is designed specifically for the visually impaired and will begin on Jan. 31 at 11 a.m., according to a press release from the city. Nearly 20 million Americans live with some form of visual impairment, the press release said, and the condition is one of the leading causes of loss of independence among people over 65.

Meetings will be on the last Tuesday of every month. New participants are welcome at any time; those interested can register by calling the Community Center at (386) 986-2323.

The support group aims to be a place of encouragement, support and a respite from the isolation and difficulty that can often come with living with a visual impairment, the press release said.

“Visual impairment affects many residents here in Palm Coast, so we are happy to offer this program where we are hopefully able to address their needs as well as a place for support from other members of the community that endure the same challenges,” Community Center Supervisor Carrie Todd said.
