Dear Peers (people who also have disabilities),
Many of us have found that we need to have our homes, self-care needs, and communication systems better prepared so that we may live our lives independently in the “new normal”. For those who do not have homes and those who want to leave a nursing facility so that they may live in their own home, the needs are even greater. Some who are living at home may now need to adjust to the loss of a caregiver and need to figure out whether there is even more they can do for themselves and whom else might be able to become a caregiver.
New approaches, technologies and resources have been surfacing in response to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though our office is still closed, and we will be operating virtually for a while longer, we are providing full services. Please contact us. All of us have disabilities and we are here for you.
Wishing health and safety to all,
Maia Santamaria, Executive Director
NWGA Center for Independent Living, Inc.
