For Emily, arthritis was making it harder for her to get around her home and run errands. Fortunately, she contacted our Center for Aging and Caregiver Services team for help. After an in-home assessment, our Occupational Therapist recommended a four-wheel walker and bathroom hand bars to support Emily with safety and stability so that she could be more independent at home.
Our JFS SV Care Manager attended a doctor's appointment with Emily and advocated for a prescription for the walker so that she would have no out-of-pocket costs.
