As told to Angie Folkwein Residential Best Practices Program Coordinator
Clients and staff from our Beverly Hills Community Residence (clients Laura, "Mr. Benny", and Dennis and staff Michelle-APL, Mary-RST, and Kim-RPM) and from the Greenbriar Community Residence (clients Stanley, Ilene, Joanna, and Mike and staff Pat- RST, Conswaylo-RST, and Tequella-RPM) hit the road this week for a trip to South Carolina. Here is the update on their trip!
We are staying staying in a huge 1457 square foot condo in Myrtle Beach. The balcony alone is 178 square feet. We are here until September 2. The condo is within walking distance of the beach; it includes 2 indoor pools, 1 outdoor pool, a lazy river, and is absolutely beautiful. We all went to the beach Monday. Laura asked to take her shoes off to be able to feel the sand in between her toes, something she has not done in many, many years. Mike loved spending some time in the water and lying on the beach. Dennis and Ilene asked to lay in the sand and enjoyed every minute of it.
We also cruised the strip yesterday and enjoyed the little souvenir shops and the beautiful sights. Monday night our whole group had a nice dinner at the Sticky Finger Smoke House. The workers there were so nice and catered to our every need. After dinner, we watched a beautiful fireworks show, it was amazing! Tuesday we enjoyed a late lunch at the River Café and were heading to Ripley’s Believe It or Not for some evening entertainment.
We are really missing Linda who is spending time at the Trevino Residence while we are gone. We hear that all of the clients and staff have really enjoyed her company and don’t ever want her to leave! Shout out to Linda, we can't wait to tell you all about our travels when we get back. We heard you went shopping and had a super time.
