Pet Therapy

Justin, lead DSP at Valley Oaks, brings Lacy to work with him a few times a week. Lacy has been a great addition to the house, offering a sense of calm for both staff and clients. Lacy is very well trained and everyone enjoys having Lacy around. When Lacy isn’t around, the clients are always asking about her and when she’ll be visiting next. Pictured is Lacy enjoying her afternoon nap.

Enjoying the Holidays

Several Austin in-home clients & Southwind ladies enjoyed time together for their holiday party. Whether it was playing dirty bingo or sharing treats they had made; a good time was had by all.

Thanksgiving 2016

This year 16 Cardinal clients, staff, and family members celebrated Thanksgiving together. Everyone met at the office around 5:30pm and shared a delicious meal of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, veggies, green bean casserole, deviled eggs, cranberry sauce, and dinner rolls. Supper was followed by pumpkin and pecan pie with whipped cream. All who attended relished the company and conversation!

Canvas and “Champagne”

This year for Cardinal Past-times we held a class that was help called Canvas and “Champagne.” The clients were each given their own canvas to paint  to their liking. They also got to enjoy some their own little individual bottles of “Champagne!”  This event was so much fun and filled with lots of laughter and socializing!
