Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno toured the Arc Mercer’s health center yesterday, meeting some of the people who have benefited from the center’s specialized work since it opened two years ago, as well as their families and the doctors, nurses and therapists who provide them with care.
They included people like James Cheeseman, a developmentally disabled man with a psychological disorder who was recently released from an institution and is adjusting to life in a group home. Cheeseman comes to the center on New York Avenue every week to meet with his therapist and sometimes get medical care from a doctor.
The center recently expanded its potential pool of clients, opening its services to people not already involved in Arc programs. Guadagno said she was glad to see the center helping clients in a unique way and encouraged the staff to share their ideas.
