Frank was a veteran that needed care
In his younger years Frank was a car mechanic, raised 2 children and worked hard all his life. He also proudly served in the Korean War as a mechanic.
The Veterans Administration contacted Right at Home when Frank started to struggle with walking. He wasn’t taking his medications, and forgetting to go to his doctors’ appointments. Both of Franks’s children lived out of state leaving Frank as what is called an ‘Elder Orphan.’
Right at Home initially got involved with Frank to help him stay steady on his feet. We were able to help him do the things that he struggled with that improved his quality of life. Our professional care associates make breakfast and lunch daily for Frank, they help with the dishes, help to keep his home clean and tidy, help with laundry, and help him take a shower and feel safe in his home. Our care associates also help with med reminders and even take Frank to his doctor appointments.
Without our help, Frank would not likely have been able to celebrate his 97th birthday. We are proud and happy to be able to serve veterans like Frank who so bravely served our country.
