As Perry Wellness Center establishes its routine once again, many peers embrace the structure they obtain in their lives through the daily program. Some go the extra mile to make sure they maintain regular attendance.
James Goss is one such individual. As Stuart Perry describes him, “James has been a peer at Perry Wellness Center for over eight years and sets a positive pace in his recovery.”
James also believes in arriving in style. He has mobility challenges and, until recently, relied on a walker to help him get around campus. About two months ago, he returned to the campus of Perry Wellness Center, after the coronavirus shutdown was lifted, on a shiny new e-wheel mobile scooter.
“I got tired of being slow and late with my walker,” James explains. “So I saved money and bought this scooter.” With a smile, he adds, “I have to be careful, because it is too fast sometimes. I am learning to navigate with it.”
It’s great to see James Goss – and all peers and staff – back at Perry Wellness Center. May we all face our own challenges with as much grit and style as James!
