Feature Friday (November 2023) - Daniel
by e3admin
Daniel recently moved apartments and has continued to thrive in the community. At his old apartment, he was constantly having issues with his landlord not properly maintaining his apartment and ignoring requests, leading to unsanitary and even unsafe living conditions. He was able lean on his supports while he found a new place for himself to live and successfully moved into a nicer and larger new apartment. Daniel lives by himself and maintains strong relationships with family and friends, inside and outside of the program. He has also been steadily working towards his goal of making healthier life choices. He started to exercise regularly and eat a balanced, nutritious diet leading to better energy, mood, and self-esteem. Daniel, we are proud of your ongoing efforts towards living well and thriving, and congratulations on your recent move! We are happy to have you as a part of the Hedwig House Community!

Joyce has been putting a lot of effort into managing her mental health and supports over the past few months. She has been working very hard to connect to new supports and manage her treatment well. She has been taking a more active role in her mental health care and advocating for herself, working toward setting boundaries and respecting the boundaries of others, and has been supporting other members in their own personal journeys. She has been practicing and gaining new coping skill (like knitting, going for walks, and reading) and has been dressing nicely, in ways that make her feel good when she attends program and goes out. She has also been volunteering regularly at her church and doing mission work in local hospitals, utilizing skills she gained in her work as a nurse in hospice care. Congratulations Joyce on your ongoing efforts to support yourself and others, we really appreciate having you in program and seeing your growth!
