Blair's Story

"My sister has been at the S. Glebe Rd. house for many years. While living there, she has definitely learned to live in harmony with others and to do her part. She has learned to do her laundry and keep up with personal hygiene on a regular basis. She has been encouraged, held accountable, & challenged by the staff...

When she had breast cancer 10 years ago, it was a CRi counselor who helped her clean & dress the burns that resulted from radiation treatments, daily. We are just so thankful for them.

My sister has always had her family near and involved in her life. But the CRi staff are always ready to do whatever is necessary for her well-being. They keep up with the details of her life and stay in touch with us. We are on the same team.

 We see the wonderful care given to other clients whose families are not nearby and it is a huge comfort. We also appreciate the effort made to plan special events to get people out together for fun. Although I know it is difficult to keep good people working in the house, the quality of care and commitment is always very consistent. 

We support CRi completely and consider their work to be a key to our sister's good life. We have no idea where my sister would be without CRi & we hope to be with them for many years to come."
