Community Residences, Inc.
October 23, 2010

My sister has been at the S. Glebe Rd. house for many years. While there she has learned to live harmoniously with others and to do her part. She has learned to do her laundry and keep up with personal hygiene on a regular basis. She has been encouraged, held accountable, and challenged by the staff. When she had breast cancer 10 years ago it was a CR counselor who daily helped her clean and dress the burns that resulted from radiation treatments. My sister has always had her family near and involved in her life. But the staff is always ready to do whatever is necessary for her wellbeing. They keep up with the details of her life and stay in touch with us. We are on the same team. We see the wonderful care given to other clients whose families are not nearby and it is a huge comfort. We also appreciate the effort made to plan special events to get people out together for fun. Although I know it is difficult to keep good people working in the house the quality of care and commitment is surprisingly consistent. We support CR completely and consider their work to be a key to our sister's good life. Thank you! Blair Simmons
