This organization helped our family obtain the resources we needed to take care of our son with Cp. They have opened their hearts and have been so wonderful to work with such compassionate people. Thank you.
My sister is 51 years old but mentally age 3. She was always cared for by my father and mother. Daddy died in 1997 and Mama died in 2010. Her death was traumatic and Janie had always lived at home. UCP had a place for her in one of their group homes. Not only do they care for her lovingly and professionally, but have done everything possible to maintain the routines to which she is accustomed. They take her to her Sunday school she has attended for over 35 years as well as her day program. She has grown socially by going on outings, to movies and events at other homes. She cares deeply for the other two ladies with whom she lives. The home is clean and the ladies are fed home cooked meals. Caregivers watch them day and night so I am not concerned about any safety issues. They care for her as if she were a member of their own family.
My sister lives in the residential housing program in Columbia. We have been SO pleased with her level of care! Everyone there really sems to have not only her best interests at heart, but a genuine care for how she is feeling and growing as a person.
