Making the holidays Magicalalt

 For Homebound Seniors

 

Adopt a Senior Requests

Our Adopt a Senior program offers the opportunity for groups or individuals to make a life changing impact for an older adult in need this holiday season. Many older adults receiving Meals on Wheels are in need of basic items to remain living independently and many eagerly wait for the holiday season, hoping someone will become inspired to help them. Case Managers assisting our Meals on Wheels clients have identified the following needs. Donate as much or little as you can. Multiple donations from different parties can satisfy a need. Once enough is donated to purchase an item, the item will be purchased and delivered to the needy client. If donations are short to purchase a particular item in time for the holidays, it may be combined with other donations to satisfy a different need.

Estimated price: 100.00 Wheelchair

Estimated price: 50.00 Air Mattress

Dolores is completely bedbound and suffers from severe pain due to arthritis along with a myriad of other health issues. Dolores is currently working with a physical therapist in order to assist her with making small movements and for a time was renting a wheelchair in order to be able to leave the confounds of her room. Dolores would greatly benefit from receiving a wheelchair in order to leave her bed and spend time in different areas of her home and with her family and for them to be able to take her out into the world as well. Being that Dolores spends the majority of her life in a bed, she would also greatly benefit from an air mattress to help prevent bedsores. She had previously applied for an air mattress through her insurance but was denied. Dolores is a joyful person and is thankful for currently receiving our home delivered meals and would be ecstatic if she were able to live in her bed more comfortably and at times have the option to leave her bedroom and home in order to feel more connected to the world around her.
