I worked at the LSS in 1982 for two weeks while working for my dad. There were a lot of profoundly disabled patients. Most were medicated so that they were controllable. The staff for the most part were kind and patient, but it only takes a few bad ones to give the lot a bad name.

The more high functioning patients were put in group homes after LSS closed. I knew a few, and would see them walking about town from time-to-time.
