Seven seniors with visual impairments are attending Camp SAVI (seniors adjusting to visual impairments) at E.H. Gentry in Talladega this week. The camp, in its seventh year, teaches skills that help the participants remain independent in their homes. The program also features sessions to educate the relatives of the seniors about issues faced by people with visual impairments. The five-day camp – sponsored by ADRS, the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind, and E.H. Gentry – kicked off Monday and will wrap up with a special ceremony Friday morning.
