Keys to a place of her own

Sharon Sees, a participant in our HOME Choice program, was excited when she received the keys to her new apartment. Sharon spent the last seven years living in a long-term care facility. She never lost sight of living once again in the community. She missed the activities of daily living and dreamed of a home where she could cook and entertain family and friends.

She sought the help of the long-term ombudsmen who guided her in applying for the HOME Choice program, and New Avenues was selected as her Transition Coordinator. We began the process of navigating the housing search and establishing Sharon back into the community.

As fate had it Sharon’s old apartment was vacant, and she was able to return to her past home and her community. Sharon’s optimism and determination was an inspiration. She has already invited friends over for a meal and a game of cards!
