At ACTE, you will find compassion, a place to come home to love, understanding, hope and joy in psite of life’s tragedies.
In august 1998, I’ve had a stroke. All my right side was affected as well as my speech and as of this date I am left with my right hand and arm not functioning. For there three years thereafter I stayed away from everybody as I was ashamed of what has happened to me. Then one day my wife spoke to me of l’ACTE and what it could do for me, so I contacted them and became a member. That was four years ago. I have since taken part in many activities. I enjy all of these as I am surrounded by other people who have also had srtoke’s, so we have become one big family and we know about each others problems. For this reason, I Gerry became a member of l’ACTE.
I have been going to l’ACTE for four years. I love l’ACTE because they offer various activities that I enjoy doing and that are interesting. It keeps me busy. It brings awareness of what one is all about, from the simplest task to more complicated ones. The people in charge of l’ACTE are nice, generous and efficient. L’ACTE brings closeness to others and a sense of how others are living their lives.
