26 Jun A Heart of Gold
While most people are tired of being stuck at home during the COVID-19 crisis, Jana Alenduff has enjoyed staying busy at home. Jana lives in New Hope’s Louise Group Home with seven other women, so you can imagine how lively the house can be! Jana enjoys living in her home and gets along well with her housemates. She has been using her time at home to make paper chain decorations for family, friends and staff members. Her Team Leader, Lucinda, says, “She has always had a heart of gold!”
Jana also stays active, and was a front runner in New Hope’s May Activity Challenge. She enjoys being creative and spending time with her dedicated caregivers. While Jana misses participating in the annual town festival, she loves living in Atlanta, Indiana. It’s been her home for many years, so when New Hope sold the original Louise Group Home, Jana and her housemates were grateful for their new home just down the street.
