YOU Make a Difference

How can you be sure your donations are making a difference in someone’s life?  

Here’s a snapshot of how you’ve helped and what you made happen recently!

Justin, 39, is looking to improve his lifestyle. An acquired brain injury caused limitations with his fine motor control and memory. Assistive technology would be an answer to help him with cooking safely, communication, and managing a calendar. Justin’s Care Manager, Carol, recognized his determination and requested an assistive technology assessment with NEAT, New England Assistive Technology. Thanks to CCC’s Independent Living Fund (ILF), Justin is on his way to meeting with an assistive technology professional to help him determine his needs for a healthy, and connected lifestyle.

Fourteen-year-old-Sedaya is going home for the first time in her life. She has lived in a long-term hospital care facility since she was born and her loving family wanted to give her a warm welcome. Sedaya’s Care Manager, Christina, knew that the family could use help creating her bedroom, so she ordered new paint and decorations for the space (in purple and gray, her favorite colors)! She now has a personalized space of her own. Congratulations to Sedaya and family!

Benjamin is a high school graduate who is looking to continue his education. He’s been busy with college courses and an internship. To attend his online courses and finish his coursework, he needed equipment to give him hands-free control of a computer. His Care Manager, Jennifer, requested a hands-free mouse camera, which tracks his eye movements, replacing a traditional mouse. With help from the Independent Living Fund, Benjamin now has a hands-free mouse to help him stay on track—he is signed up for a college-level course this summer, and he’s on the way to earning his associate degree on-line.

Patricia, 78, has had a few medical setbacks, but she’s recently improved her ability to perform everyday tasks. She’s 78 and lives in a short-term rehab facility where she is strengthening her ability to walk, among other abilities. With the help of rehabilitation professionals, she’s improving every day. Patricia’s Care Manager, Lisa, knew that next big step in her progress would require a transfer bench with a swivel seat to help her enter and exit the shower. Today, thanks to the Independent Living Fund Fund, Patricia has the bench and can shower safely.

Grace is a 52-year-old woman who loves to cook.  These days she’s looking to tackle a new hobby: gardening. She wishes to plant flowers, herbs and vegetables in planter pots, hanging planters, and raised beds. Grace’s Care Manager, Luisa, knew that gardening could help her stay physically and mentally healthy. Luisa requested help from CCC and donors like you stepped up to make Grace’s gardening dreams come true!
