This week's story of #BridgesCares is brought to you by Bridges of Wyoming! Cliff has made such huge strides in his health. Since coming to Bridges he has lost a whopping 56 pounds! Cliff and his staff Aaron and Terri work very hard on helping Cliff to learn proper nutrition and portion control. Cliff's team including his Case Manager and Guardian are so very proud of him for all of his hard work and making such a great lifestyle change. We even received a call from his Doctor that has seen Cliff for the last five years and stated that he has never seen Cliff in such a healthy state. He was very impressed with how well the staff have helped Cliff, and with how much Cliff has made this positive change. Cliff very excited to continue with his health journey. Great job Cliff! we are very proud of you!A friendly reminder this holiday season! 📷: @thesundaychapterThis week's #BridgesCares story is brought to you by Bridges Autism Therapies. Last week, we had Farmer Joe and his big blue tractor visit our center in Evansville! Why you may wonder? Because one of our littles went on the potty 100% independently! Famer Joe let us climb up inside the tractor, turn the wheels, and rev the engine. Thank you, Farmer Joe! #BridgesCares #BridgesAutismTherapies #EvansvilleDo you follow us on #Twitter?

Erin came to Bridges a little over three months ago. When Erin came into services, she had been bedridden and had not walked for over a year! In this short time, she has worked with her staff Kayla, Maygan, and Calla along with the rest of the team she has begun walking again.

Erin is now able to walk around her home, to and from the vehicle, and she has a wonderful goal to be able to go up and down the stairs at her daughter's house for Thanksgiving! We know with all of her hard work and perseverance she is sure to succeed! 
Erin has also started a wonderful garden at her home and enjoys all of her fresh food and the time she can now spend outdoors! #BridgesCares #BridgesofWyoming #ThanksgivingBe sure to thank someone today and every day. Thank you to our team who is working today in homes and in the community! We appreciate you. #BridgesCares #Thanksgiving
