If you are struggling with a health issue, life change or caregiver responsibilities, the Oscar and Ella Wilf Campus for Senior Living offers support groups that can help. Support groups bring people together to share common experiences, offer emotional comfort and even gain practical advice. Sometimes just talking with others in similar situations can be helpful in coping with challenging situations.
Support groups at The Wilf Campus are ongoing and cover different topics. Anyone can join a group at any time, registration is encouraged and attendance is free. Here is a sampling of some of our upcoming groups and meetings:
Low Vision Support Group
Join our support group for the visually impaired. This group is a gathering of people coping with vision loss due to age-related macular degeneration or other causes of vision loss.
