  1. I understand Miss Allysa is reading online to the clients. Can you share with me how Erinn can tune in?

    Hope all is well for the lot. Erinn continues to remain in quarantine, at least until another 2 weeks elapses.

    Please keep us informed. Erinn is anxiously awaiting to return to Apple and resume class with Miss Amber and Miss Billie.

  4. Would this workshop be appropriate for a 58 yr old handicapped ( head trauma ) woman moving to Spring Hill Fla around Nov 2021? Moving my mom and sister back to Fla and out of NY. Sister went to L.I. Head Injury Assoc. on Long Island. Thanks.

    • Hello Phillip, We would be happy to schedule a tour for your loved one, you and your family. We have a variety of meaningful activities to offer. It is difficult for me to say whether we can provide services. It sounds like your loved one would meet the criteria for services but we would need more information to make a determination. During the tour we will gather additional information. When you are ready, please contact Kerry at 727-847-2555 to set up a tour. We look forward to meeting you and your loved one.
