Envisioning Home at George Pearson Centre

George Pearson's Main Hallway - animation by Su-An Ng

George Pearson Centre is not just a long-term care facility for people with disabilities, it’s home to over 120 individuals. These people require specialized assistance and 24-hour care as a result of multiple sclerosis, spinal cord and traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy or a variety of other health conditions.

I met some of these residents. In a video project entitled “Envisioning Home,” the residents talked openly and candidly about their lives before Pearson and at Pearson. And because many will be living here for years to come, if not for the rest of their lives, they’ve even dared to dream about what could make Pearson an ideal home.

“Envisioning Home” is a look into the lives of some extraordinary George Pearson residents. It is a story told in three parts. I invite you to come and pay a visit.
