It is always nice to hear of compliments about how much we help people, and who they come from. Recently two comments were overheard that speak volumes about the impact our staff have on people’s lives. As one participant in the support group said, “I have never known a place where everyone goes out of their way to help you. They all go above and beyond what they have to do to ensure you get the help you want and need.”
Only a few weeks earlier a mother that was with her young son in the reception area waiting for their blind daughter to finish her class was asked by her son what the words on the reception wall meant (Enhancing independence, Empowering Individuals and Enriching Lives), the mother replied “that means the Society is helping people be all they can be”.
One older person and one child, decades difference in ages, yet each knowing the same thing about how our staff makes a difference in the lives of so many on a daily basis!
