A Testimonial from an Employer of Caramore Clients

Michael Malek, Carol Woods Retirement Community dining services manager, compliments Caramore for its record with workers with disabilities.

"The presence of Caramore's workers has lent a significant dimension to the Carol Woods community. Caramore has high expectations, just like we have of our own staff. Caramore's values—courtesy, respect, dignity, self-determination—are closely aligned with ours. Ted McCreary and Barry Shanley are phenomenally gifted. With tough love, hands on counseling and unusual acumen, they encourage (client’s) reliability and desire to learn."

A Long Island Sensibility

Over the past 10 months, the face of Caramore has changed enormously. The Caramore offices, housed in the newly dedicated Jack Simonds Center, have received a burst of energy and renewal in the form of fresh colors, carpeting, furnishings and artwork.

The igniting spark can be attributed mainly to the vision and efforts of Long Island native Sue Curtis. Suzi selflessly donated her design and artistic expertise towards giving Caramore a new look that would be warmer, friendlier, and more reflective of the relationship-building efforts that Caramore has established with their clients and the whole community.

Suzi's creative vision for Caramore, as a model environment for the rehabilitative and relationship-building work that we do, has been immediately accepted. The new Caramore is a place that promotes wellness, social integration, and success for all who enter. It is also a vibrant and comfortable environment that encourages growth and creative interaction for all.

Many thanks to Suzi for her infusion of energy and for setting a new standard for a proper rehabilitative environment for dealing with mental illness.

Thanks Suzi!
