WE HAVE CHOICES

(cont.)

The film focuses on people who are living in their own apartments and homes, for the most part without 24-hour support.  But it is important that you know that people can live with choice and individualized services no matter how much support they need, as many do now in New York.

We want to thank our good friend Jerry Smith, from the University of Minnesota, the filmmaker, who helped us tell the story of choices on this great video.

SANYS Board of Directors

Some questions for discussion:

From the stories in the film, what is different about the relationship that people have with staff, who provide support for people who live in their own place compared to people who live in group homes?

What is different about the relationships that people have with members of their community compared to more traditional group living arrangements?

What are some of the choices people who are profiled in the film make on a daily basis?

If you would like a copy of the film, please send a free will donation to cover the cost of mailing to:
