Meet Lisa Davidson. She is a support worker who looks after adults who suffer from developmental disabilities in a group home for Choices. One of the things she loves about her job is integrating her clients into the community.
“I try to support them as much as I can. If they want to go somewhere, they can go somewhere independently. Bowling, movies, volunteering, a rib-fest and more. I want them to be familiar with their community. And if I can get them a job, that’s even better. We have helped clients find jobs at Tim Horton’s, Wendy’s, Turtle Jacks, and Boston Pizza.”
“I love helping my clients. One time a client went to a live show of the Price is Right, a rendition of the show. This was his favourite show. The man was in his glory. When he heard the music, the lights went on, and I could see he was very happy.”
Lisa brings rays of sunshine into people’s lives who would be lost without her.
