You Make a Difference
We are changing people’s lives with your donations. Whether through making our clients’ homes more livable, helping them secure assistive technology for easier and at times less painful mobility, or just providing them with a simple item or opportunity that they have long wanted but could not afford.
Here’s a snapshot of how you’ve helped and what you made happen recently!
Patricia, 80, was able to replace her special swivel chair that was destroyed in a flood. Having spinal stenosis makes it difficult to twist and turn to see who is at the door. Your donation ($446) made Patricia more comfortable and in control of her environment.
Rose, 68, couldn’t get the infestation of bed bugs under control herself. You helped hire an exterminator ($600) to solve the problem once and for all.
William, 95, lives alone with no family. Your generous donation ($348) helped him replace his 25-year-old small and broken television with a larger one. With visual impairment, the size of his old TV offered little use, and TV is William’s greatest enjoyment these days, since getting out of the house is difficult with his chronic back pain and vertigo, not to mention the pandemic.
Jim, 77, who literally had no food. He was provided with a $200 gift card so he could purchase food staples, fresh fruits and vegetables. A CCC care manager is now working with him to ensure that he has a food security plan moving forward.
Cathy, 56, has multiple sclerosis. Her goal is to obtain her GED through the Bristol Adult Education Program. Especially during the pandemic, this simply could not be possible without a computer, so we purchased a Chromebook for her. She promised to let us know when she graduates
Lupe, 76, is much more comfortable now that she has a new mattress ($399). Due to having a very worn out mattress, Lupe had been sleeping on the couch while her osteoarthritis pain and ability to move was worsening.
Franklin, 98, made a simple request, non-slip socks and a new pair of slippers. He lives alone, on a meager income, and is challenged by multiple chronic health conditions.
Ken, 85, needed a specialized walker customized for a his 6’ 4” height. With your support, we secured a new walker from a local medical supply company, which often works with the care managers on unusual and customized requests.
