Donna Fox

donna foxDonna Fox and her thoughts on Independent Living

Donna has been with SKIL for approximately seven years. She has recently moved into her own house from an apartment. Finding accessible and affordable housing was a challenge. "I have always been a private person and I've tried to become as independent as possible...."  Living in an apartment some things come easy and there are new challenges living in a private home.

 

Donna is working to reclaim many of the things a person might take for granted such as; coming and going, shopping and just daily life as an adult. Donna shared that without the support of SKIL and working together she would have moved to a nursing care facility. Donna shared that without SKIL and her family support she wouldn't be where she is now; living in her own home.

 

Prior to Donna meeting SKIL she had worked in the Social Service Industry herself. But even with that training she was not aware of all the services that are available. Donna said "But when I found out about SKIL and that I could self direct my care. Be at home and relearn how to do everything rather than be put somewhere; where I didn't have a choice to have any independence. Because this can happen to any one of us."
