She is age 78. Mariom worked for Walmart as a greeter, so you may have seen her smiling face. She was also a Foster Grandparent because she enjoys investing in children. She uses a walker because she falls a lot due to arthritis and fibromyalgia. She enjoys crocheting and reading; she is making afghans for her 6 great grandchildren, which is keeping her busy. Mariom and her family would have the assurance of knowing she could get help.
She is age 57. Linda served as volunteer as Vice Chair for HUD for several years; she loves serving her community! Linda is legally blind and suffers from arthritis which causes her to fall. Linda and her family are thankful for the SafeLink service provided by Safe At Home.
She worked as a Nurse for many years helping others until she was hurt in a car accident and since has kidney failure and is at fall risk with medications. Susan owns her home in the country and there is no one for miles; she needs this service to help her live in her home and to get help when she needs it. The service has helped Susan several times already; she is very thankful for the emergency service we provide.
She is in her late 70's. She is legally blind and wheelchair bound. She knows the PERS will assist her to get help when she falls and it could save her life. She has had recent falls. The last one took her an hour to drag herself to a phone to get help. If she had injured her arm she would have laid there with no way to get help. She has been a homemaker all her life. She has raised her two kids and has grandkids now. She was involved in the community and church for as long as she was able to. Once her eye sight was gone, she became more homebound and was not able to be as active.
She has chronic arthritis in her back and feet and is at serious risk of falling. She lives independently and wants to remain that way; she needs our PERS to maintain her dignity and independence. She enjoys living by herself and spending time outdoors.
She has raised a son with sever mental challenges. He is now in a state home and she is unable to visit him because she does not have a car. She went to school for drafting and had trouble finding work in this area. She eventually learned how to repair cars so she could take car of hers and fix others. She is in a wheelchair due to back and knee problems. She can transfer herself but can not stand for even shorts amount of time. Suzanne has Diabetes and COPD also. She can not afford a home phone and only has her cell phone. This makes her unable to get a SafeLink. She might be able to get a SafeMobile if the funding comes in.
