Message From The CEO

Dear Shore Friends and Families,

This summer our individuals served have been participating in outside activities e.g. walks in the park, gardening and other interactions in the community.  We are happy to share that the Lois Lloyd Center has completed some projects to enhance their program.  Each Group Room had windows added to their doors; interior rooms had a larger window installed to bring in more light, and televisions and laptops were added to incorporate “The Current”, which is a new curriculum that was designed through a collaboration with other developmental disability agencies.  This curriculum was funded through The Coleman Foundation along with the upgrades to the Lois Lloyd Center.  The Center has created Theme Group Rooms and our clients will be able to have more choices on how they will spend their day.  Painting of the Center will start in early September, which will freshen up the rooms and hallways.

All of our programs are transitioning toward compliance with the Olmstead Act – a federal regulation that requires states to provide enhanced opportunities for community integration and to ensure that certain rights and protections are in place for individuals who receive Medicaid-funded Home and Community Based Services (HCBS). The regulation is known as the Settings Rule and states must be in compliance by March 2023. The rule ensures individuals get the most out of community living and receive person-centered services in the most integrated setting possible.  

On a personal note, I recently married Dr. Walter Alan Alm.  I changed my name to Alm and switched my middle name to be my first name, which is what I grew what being called.  However, feel free to call me either Alexis or India.  Thank you for your continual support.

Warm regards,

Alexis India Alm, MNA, CFRE
