They have also taught Alfred the use of special cups and spoons which allow him to feed himself. He hopes to use regular utensils again soon. For now, someone from Community LIFE arrives early to prepare him for the van ride to the center for his therapy. Someday, he hopes to be able to get himself up and ready on his own every morning.
Alfred has great memories of his family farm and his 4 children, his fishing trips and playing sports, now these memories are becoming goals and, hopefully, a reality.
Alfred says, "I've never met a group of people so nice, in one place and at one time, it's amazing."
