We do this by filling the gap between what they’ve already accomplished and what they still want to achieve in all aspects of their lives, including personal hygiene, cooking, taking care of their households, making friends, enjoying good health, recreation, and community involvement. Our most successful staff are patient, friendly, hardworking, and care deeply about the rights of others.
