We're happy to report there have been no Covid-19 cases among Life Styles staff or clients, and hope the same is true for you. Making every effort to keep things that way, Life Styles continues to operate under "shelter in place" guidelines—delivering client meals and checking temperatures daily—despite the easing of some statewide social distancing restrictions. With precautionary measures added into our Supported Living programming, we're considering a June 1 re-opening of that specific program. We'll let you know when a decision has been made in that regard.

In the meantime, thank you for your continued support of our organization during these challenging times. We're so fortunate to be part of a community that values and supports adults with disabilities.
Linda was one of the very first Life Styles clients, in 1978.

Linda Versus The Quarantine

Special thanks to Lynda Matthews for her reporting and photographs.

Just down the street from the hubbub at the Life Styles' Stensgaard Center lies the quiet cul-de-sac of Linda Jo Circle, where Linda and other Life Styles clients live in fourteen charming duplexes. Linda Jo Circle is a tight-knit neighborhood where clients maintain their own households under the watchful eye of our Supported Living staff.

Linda has been managing life under quarantine exceptionally well, keeping busy with her knitting hobby, taking in the fresh spring air, and spending time with her roommate, Vicky. Like all other Life Styles clients, her temperature is assessed daily and lunch and dinner are delivered to her door every weekday.

We recently asked Linda a few questions about what she's doing now and what she's looking forward to in the midst of life under quarantine:

If I could have one thing for the rest of this social distancing it would be: A boyfriend.
I was looking forward to ______, but it was cancelled: The movies.
The first thing I'm going to do when all this is over is: Go to Walmart.
My favorite meal has been: The Saturday cookouts we have at Linda Jo.
I entertain myself by: Looking at the flowers in the Linda Jo cul-de-sac.
The easiest part of the quarantine has been: Being around friends at Linda Jo.

Taking time to smell the flowers.
Careful cookout with friends.
Busy hands are happy hands.
