Fitchburg, MA – Team members Jeff Fontus, Program Manager (right), Bianca McDonald, Licensed Practical Nurse (top left) and Samantha Hill, Direct Support Professional (bottom left) of our new Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) program in Massachusetts’s are living our mission to empower individuals every day in a new residential program.
The new ABI program opened its first house this past October in Fitchburg, MA. It is home to four individuals with an acquired brain injury (ABI), who previously lived in nursing or rehabilitative facilities. Prior to the individuals moving in, Program Manager, Jeff Fontus, worked behind the scenes, meeting with individuals and their families, to include them in the process of building and furnishing their new home. They viewed photos and videos of the construction, chose the paint colors for their rooms, and participated in choosing furniture for the shared areas of the newly constructed home.
