Pete has lived at LiveOak for over eight years. He moved into the Ranch and lived there for several years. However, as time went by, Pete found it more difficult to keep up with the fast-pace schedule of the Ranch. He moved to our small group home the SmithHouse in 2019 and the change had a significant positive impact on his wellbeing. The move allowed Pete to continue the relationships that he had built with staff and peers at the Ranch while living in a location that could meet his needs for a slower-paced environment. Pete is still just as active as ever. He eats at his favorite restaurants, goes to music concerts and dances, attends exercise classes and goes to classic car shows. At our group home, Pete continues the active lifestyle he enjoys at a pace that works best for him.
"SmithHouse is a good place to live because I get to do things I enjoy, like dancing and building with Legos, and regularly seeing my daughter." - Pete
