Doug Part Four – Transitioning to the Real World:

Doug was at Clearview for 13 months where he received therapy 6 days a week, the goal being to transition into living on his own as much as possible, as opposed to being placed in a nursing home or group home. He does have an aide who helps with grocery shopping and various household chores 2 hours/day. Walking to the Kwik Trip 2 blocks from his home to buy a paper, has given Doug the opportunity to work on important skills such as walking first with a wheelchair and then with a walker, and learning what kind of accommodations make his life easier in “the real world”.
