“SADI has allowed me to remain independent and in my own home without the fear of going into a nursing home. I have safety and security knowing I always have someone I know and trust to care for me. Through one of SADI’s programs, my sister has been able to be a caregiver for me. I cannot imagine how my life would be right now without SADI. “
