We understand that during acute phases of illness individuals lose or forget skills necessary for independent living. As individuals increase understanding of their illness and their own unique recovery process, we assist in the transition to successful independent living. We assist individuals in regaining skills in areas of self care, healthy meal preparation, finances and social relationships.
Beverly has been living in a supportive living environment as her symptoms of mental illness had increased. She has had difficulty in living on her own as she often ate poorly and had difficulty with paying her bills consistently.
