During COVID-19, disabled adults lack services and supports

Donna and Hal Cohen rest on a bench at the Windsor Center River Trail with their disabled daughter, Rachael, 27, on a recent afternoon. Rachael’s normal routine has been halted by the coronavirus outbreak and her parents are concerned about how the disruption is affecting her. They took a walk to give Rachael some stimulus and things to react to. Rachael attends adult day care four days a week and does therapeutic riding at a horse farm on Wednesdays. “I think she’s really confused and wonders if she did something wrong,” said Donna Cohen. “Now we’re kind of in a new thing but it’s not very stimulating.”  |   photo by: Cloe Poisson
