Arrival at Community Options Proves Life-Changing for Peggy

The first time I met Peggy H., she was at her old day program, sitting slumped over with her hearing aids turned off.  She was under weight and overdressed; she had two pairs of socks on, two pair of pants and four shirts.  She seemed so sad. The day program reported this was how Peggy spent most of her time there.  The respite agency said they had difficulty getting her to eat and shower on a regularly basis.

Peggy moved to Savannah group home on January 12, 2015.  Presently, Peggy is the happiest, loving and most cheerful individual anyone could ever meet.  She has become best friends with her housemates and loves to go to concerts, movies, festivals and fast food restaurants.  Peggy has planted her own garden and enjoys making special artifacts to decorate her loving home.  She is very independent and has gained notoriety for her helping hand. Peggy is so thankful to the wonderful staff at Community Options for helping her overcome challenges to live life to the fullest!
