On April 22, twenty-one residents and staff from five different homes attended the Shriner’s Circus in Wilmington. To organize such an outing is quite the endeavor! But, staff worked together – the programs shared program 5 vans to accommodate wheelchair bound residents and all staff worked together to make sure everyone was safe and happy.

A big thank you to all the staff for making this excursion possible, especially program directors:

  • Svetlana Husidic, Chandler Street
  • Jess Damron, Columbia Park
  • Patrick Mose, Graniteville Rd
  • Maria Vega, Hildreth Street
  • Julie Goodwin, Whitegate Rd
  • Vincent Van Der Linden, Residential Supervisor

Before the show, the group was able to take photos with clowns and one resident was even able to ride a camel!  Everyone loved the show, especially Carrie who said she “had not laughed this hard in a long time” and Elaine who “was really happy to be there and had a really good time.”

Without the dedication of staff, group outings like this would not be possible! It takes a whole team to coordinate logistic and make sure every member of the group is safe and comfortable.
