'ARRM Cares Award' Winner - Akoele Danklou

Living Well Disability Services is proud to announce that Akoele Danklou, Personal Advocate at our Mary Adele Home, has been named a 2016 ‘ARRM Cares Direct Support Professional Award’ winner!

Akoele began her career with our organization six years ago. What began as an asleep overnight position out of necessity for an extra job grew into the role of Personal Advocate out of her desire to bring change into people’s lives.

Richard H. lived in the home where Akoele began her work with Living Well Disability Services. Richard did not warm up to people easily; the wall he built around himself often kept others at a distance. Akoele’s calm presence penetrated that wall, and eventually broke through it. In 2015, Akoele realized she had developed a strong bond with Richard. As a result, she asked to become his Personal Advocate. Over the past year, the connection between Akoele and Richard has brought changes into Richard’s life that no one thought possible.
