Ms. Mildred is 85 years old and has lived in her home for 53 years. Her house has been home to countless family gatherings for her 3 children and 9 grandchildren.
Ms. Mildred suffers from neuropathy in her legs and has difficulty moving about her home. Her children help her in and out of the home, but she is fearful of walking down steps on her own. She is in need of a ramp to safely enter and exit her home on her own. “I would love to be able to go out on my front porch,” she said while talking about her past love of the outdoors and gardening.
