CDHS Executive Director Reggie Bicha and Viki Manley, Director of the Office of Community Access & Independence, visited Bobby King in Boulder a few weeks ago.
Bobby was at the Wheat Ridge Regional Center for nearly 50 years. He has quadriplegia and cerebral palsy. Eight months ago, Bobby moved to a group home in the Boulder community.
It was the first time he had lived outside the Regional Center since he was six years old, and he is now enjoying many activities with his new neighbors and friends. He is particularly proud of his personalized room decorations and enjoys spontaneous activities likes spending time with horses at a stable nearby.
Bobby's story is a remarkable example of teamwork and expert professionals coming together in the best interests of the client. And it exemplifies how CDHS can help our clients live in the most integrated community setting possible. Besides dedicated caretakers, Bobby now has his own room, a park nearby and a view of the flatirons from his front door.
It's great to see Bobby happy and enjoying his new home in the community.
