ImagineAbility has supported Noah in our day program for the past year.   Arcane Community has been supporting Noah two days a week residentially since July 2019.   All of us (his whole support network) worked with the family and his social worker to make this ‘deployment’ work.

The story so far:

Background:

Anoop is an ImagineAbility staff that has been redeployed to support the family and the residential agency.  Arcane is where he is being supported residentially two days a week.   We’ve supported this since Monday, March 30 but worked on support with his family, his social worker and Arcane Community for at least two weeks before.

From Noah and Noah’s family:
“We are just delighted with how it has turned out and I’m really grateful for each one of your part in this solution. 

Anoop is back said he felt good about transitioning the program between our house and Arcane. Noah has indicated he’d prefer LESS SNOW and BLIZZARDS but otherwise seems really happy. 

On a personal note, I really should have video taped the first day Anoop came over. Noah was singing and so excited.  Then Anoop left for his half hour lunch and when he came back, Noah was back singing and seemed really happy to have Anoop back for the afternoon.  Thanks again for this creative and supportive response. Anoop is bringing a lot of consistency and support from our program to the Arcane house and it’s so good for staff there to see more of what Noah is capable of. We are so appreciative of the way this has turned out.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make sure this keeps working well. 

Between Noah’s stomach issues finally abating, Wednesday evening coverage with Brittany and this day program, our family is feeling calmer than we’ve felt in almost a year. 

Thanks again for all of your involvement in making this a success. 

I was feeling so grateful, I posted about this on Facebook, if you don’t follow me there.” Link

Take care
