"Community Living has given my brother a way to participate more fully in life. His choices are respected and his interests are supported. He receives the physical care he needs, but the difference between Community Living and other supportive living providers is that his interests become a priority too. Hobbies and friendships are key to emotional happiness, and his support staff see that those are pursued. The support staff have been very receptive to my brother's needs, which have varied throughout his time with Community Living. I can honestly say they can meet the needs of many different clients and do it well. As an advocate and family member, I am confident that my brother is receiving great care and support. I am always thrilled to share my experiences with Community Living with other families of differently abled members. Community Living has let me be a sister rather than a caregiver, and I am forever grateful". - Heather is Joe's sister.
"My sister Laurie has been with Community Living for about 30 years. They have always supported her with respect and compassion as she transitioned from group home to independent living and now with one on one total care. Community Living is always available to address all of our questions and concerns. It feels good knowing that Community Living is there to meet all my sister's needs" - Dave is Laurie's brother.
"My brother Bill has blossomed in ways I never could have imagined since he moved in with Community Living. His verbal skills are so much better; he's more aware of what is going on in the world and in his community; he's an avid sports fan, knowing who wins and who loses; he expresses his opinions about everything; and I'm not sure he's had a real sick day, a huge change from his days at home. I really appreciate how responsive the staff is to exploring ways to enrich Bill's life and working with his hands-on family. While he is excited to come home for visits, he's entirely happy to return to his home" - Paula is Bill's sister.
"Our sister has been with Community Living since its start. She receives wonderful care, and we have never had an issue with her care. We are kept informed of her care and have a chance to be involved in decisions, large or small. Staff sees that she regularly visits her doctors and dentist, and have stayed with her, past their shift end, when she has fallen and needed to go to the emergency room. At times, I say she has a better social life than I do with outings, BBQ's and birthday celebrations. Community Living is her second family, she enjoys her many friends" - Kathy is Carolyn's sister.
"As parents of a client in Community Living for more than 30 years we have seen many good things happening. We are very pleased with Darren's staff and the care given to all of the clients. You manage to keep spirits high and purring along. Keep up the good work and we continue to pray for the organization" - Dan and Molly are Darren's parents.
"Lee has progressive dementia which requires 24 hour 1 to 1 coverage. His residential services are excellent thru Community Living. As difficult as his care has become they are consistently thorough, caring and competent. The Community Living staff go above and beyond. He has been their client for over 35 years". - Laurie is Lee's sister.
