Six residents from the Crystal Waters Personal Care Home recently celebrated with a small graduation ceremony.

The residents recently completed the PEER program (Pennsylvania's Empowered Expert Residents), which provides training to residents of long-term facilities.

These residents have been trained to become advocates who will help to improve the environment for their fellow residents.
