Greater Independence

Millie Colbourne & Lorna MacPherson

Persons with disabilities, seniors, and people with mental health issues are going to be able to choose the kinds of services and support they need and live with greater independence in their own communities if they choose.

A committee of government support service people, and family members have been working on a program for months and the details were announced Friday.

To talk about how lives will change, we have Millie Colbourne (CEO of the Breton Ability Center) in studio and Lorna MacPherson (Director of Services for Persons with Disabilities) on the line.
