When Jonathan started on the Waiver, he was living in a foster care home on Kaua`i. After receiving waiver services, he moved into an apartment of his own. His Personal Assistant (PA) worker helped him to cook, clean, and do his laundry. Eventually, he was able to perform these activities for himself and the PA worker just spot-checked to make sure that everything was alright. PA workers also assisted with shopping, picking up medications, and taking Jonathan to pay his bills.
Jonathan also took computer classes for two semesters at the community college. His PA worker took notes for him and helped him with his homework assignments. Jonathan attended Partners in Policymaking as well, using his PA worker to again help him with his notes and homework.
It was at Partners in Policymaking that Jonathan met his girlfriend. He is moving to Kona to be with his girlfriend. His PA workers are helping him to pack-up and to clean his house.
