Testimonial for Personal Support Services
The care that the Harford Center staff has offered my Adam over the past year as we transitioned from the youth Autism Waiver to Adult Services has been exceptional. I find the center staff to be pleasant, professional and available when I reach out to them.
Our three Personal Support Staff keep Adam physically and mentally active in the evenings and on weekends. They provide him an interesting and wonderful quality of life between trying new foods, performing personal care tasks, social outings and shopping. They send videos and photos of their comings and goings most days. I often envy Adam’s active social life!!
Bianca, Mark and Parth have become extended family to us. Sending my non verbal son out into the world requires incredible faith and belief in the goodness of others. With their experience and training I trust they can safely and caringly see him through any challenging behavior situations that may occur.
My family and I are appreciative of our friends at the Harford Center. We look forward to the future as we work together for Adam’s continued success.
