Lynn – Overcoming Challenges with Support
Lynn struggled with depression and loneliness for many years, oftentimes resorting to crisis helplines to see her through. All that changed when she joined our Individual Community Living Supports (ICLS) and Life Skills programs.
Through weekly visits and support from her ICLS worker, Beth, Lynn began living healthier. She replaced processed foods with more nutritional items, walked her dog more often, and started venturing on her own for walks at the mall. Getting out and making friends in the Life Skills activities helped Lynn feel less lonely and isolated.
Beth’s relationship with Lynn has also been transformative. Lynn says this about Beth, “She takes me shopping and on other outings into the community to try new things. She makes me feel safe and loved.”
