Testimony: Mrs. J's husband is a dialysis patient. Mrs. J, who is feeble herself has had back
surgery that prevents her from standing most days because of the pain. Mrs. J says the meals are
such a blessing because I can't stand long enough to cook. The meals have worked out so well with him
being a dialysis patient and being on such a strict diet."

Mr. M is in a wheelchair and lives alone. He is unable to bath on his own. Without our personal care services I truly feel like he would be place into the nursing home.

Ms. G participated in our evidenced based Matter of Balance 6 week course - " For the first time in 15 years I have been able to go in my back yard and work in my flower beds. I got a man to come and cut down the trees in my flower bed that were about 4 feet tall. He dug up the weeds and flower bulbs that were still living. He added 12 sacks of soil and wanted to plant my bulbs back but I told him no I wanted to do that myself. I now have 4 beds full of iris, amaryllis, spider lily, pansies and dianthus. I am feeling so much better than before and I attribute it all the exercise I am now doing (Matter of Balance)".
