After my parents died, I moved in with other family members. I’m sad to say that the relationship didn’t last very long because I missed doctors appointments and my health started to fail. I was then placed in a nursing home to live with people much older than myself. I became unhappy with where my life was headed.
Things changed for the better when I met Shirie Taylor, a representative from Best Friends Community Services. Shirie thought I was a candidate for group home living. She said that there was a caring community called Grapeland, Texas, that would welcome me with open arms.
I am so happy I decided to move. My health has improved because I make it to all of my medical appointments. Plus, I have a new beautician in Grapeland, Sherry Weisinger, that I absolutely love.
Best Friends Community Services changed my life for the better and I’m proud to call Grapeland my home.
