My brother John had been in the Guardian Center in Brockton, Ma for 2 years. He was a young man with a severe obesity problem. John was over 600 pounds and this facility made him feel like he was 150 pounds. Never was he treated badly by any staff. At Holiday time the staff got presents for the residents and had a Holiday tree for them. He had a nurse named Karen and she was a doll. Because of His size the facility demanded that Medicare get him an appropriate bed. They got a king size hospital bed that raised and lowered and allowed him to get up without assistance. They also ordered him an extra wide wheelchair so as not to make him feel cramped or uncomfortable. He enjoyed his stay there and it really was a turning point in John going home to an apartment and living on his own again. Being a large Man in a built for small people world was very hard, yet the Guardian Center made John feel like he belonged.
