Thank you to HomePlace in Oak Harbor, who donated a basement-full of Durable Medical Equipment to Island Senior Resources and Care Coordinators from Northwest Regional Council. We received walkers, wheelchairs, bath benches, commodes, and canes, all of which will be made available, at no charge, to our clients in need. If you have questions, please contact Celeste Fikejs, Island Senior Resources’ Case Management Supervisor, or your Case Manager, (360) 321-1600 or (36) 678-3373.
So far, this equipment has assisted a client recovering at home from a stroke, another client that has been in and out of the hospital for seizures and not quite on her feet, and a long-time client that was isolated in her home when her old walker did not function properly. This generous donation has allowed clients to remain in their homes and engage in the community as they wish.
