Rachael participates in a variety of activities at the day program she attends. Her favorite activity is working at the front desk a few hours a day as a greeter.
“When I first met Rachel she was very quiet, seldom spoke up or offered insight into what she wanted, other than to not be in the nursing home. Now you can’t get a word in edgewise and she just bubbles! She and her house-mother have a personal handshake and she has a housemate that is near her own age that she can talk to. She shops, talks, takes pictures on her phone, and has a job she is proud of. The best way to describe it is that she is alive. She literally glows and is now interested in everything.”
