“It has been such a positive experience for my brother-in-law and our whole family,” says Julie (not her real name). Her brother-in-law has been a resident of Adrian House for six years. The facility is a duplex on a residential street, housing ten residents at a time.
Julie can’t say enough good things about the staff and progress her brother-in-law has made there. “They teach him to be independent,” she says. “That is something he could not do well at on his own.”
She explains that the combination of close supervision by mental workers and psychiatric nurses along with the routines of daily life is a recipe for success.
“He is cooking, cleaning and participating in group activities – he has a life,” says Julie. The resident’s extended family visits him regularly and feels good when they leave him at Adrian House. “The communication from the staff is very good, and we feel really comfortable and welcome,” she says.
