Ms. Mary B., 60-years-old, returned to her home the first of August after spending six months in a physical therapy rehabilitation center. Mary suffered from a stroke leaving her with only one leg and a very weak body. Her home was in need of safety modifications tailored to Mary’s new wheelchair.
Not only did Ms. B. return to her home of 25 years unable to walk on her own, she also return home alone. Mary’s husband died in March while she was in therapy. He had served as Mary’s primary caretaker. “I was very scared to go home, since my husband’s death, but I am ready to live life again,” Mary said.
To help her adjust to normal life again, Rebuilding Together’s A-Team built a wheelchair ramp and provided other home modifications that allowed Mary back into her home. Ms. B can now get around her home safely and independently.
Mary’s daughter T.J. was so pleased with the work of the A-Team, “I can finally take my mom home! Your time and hard work is a true blessing for us.”
