Mr. Stanford Henderson is the first resident of Stonecroft. He moved into his apartment in June of 1984. Before moving into Stonecroft, Mr. Henderson lived back a lane so anytime he wanted to go anywhere, it required him to walk 1/4 mile down his lane to access the main road. Mr. Henderson is affected by Cerebral Palsy, which is a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone, or posture. It affects Mr. Henderson's ability to move and maintain balance. He states at the time he moved in, he relied (and still does) heavily on public transportation. Although there was public transportation available in 1984, the buses did not have lifts for wheelchairs, which made it extremely difficult for someone who is wheelchair bound.
Because there was not anyone to coordinate activities for residents, they all worked together to provide their own entertainment.
Mr. Henderson has been through 5 Site Managers since he moved in.
