Support the Howard I. Abrams In-Home Care Program
“My Family could not function without the hours of care we receive from Vera and Capri.”
In April 2011 Robert Janssen was diagnosed with ALS. This former accomplished athlete and occupational therapist relies on his caregivers to get his family through the week. “We are incredibly grateful for the Howard I Abrams In-Home Care program that provides the services of our two caregivers, Vera and Capri, free of charge.” While Robert’s nine -year old twin daughters and wife Melissa all pitch in to help, Abrams caregivers give them a much-needed break to go to the market, exercise, or work.
What do caregivers do? The better question is “what DON’T they do? From bathing, to feeding, to laundry, caregivers are essential to an ALS patient’s well-being. The Abrams Program relieves some of the stress for family caregivers who take on the vast majority of caregiving. It is one of the most vital services the Chapter provides. Please give today.
Arabella, Melissa, Robert and Paris Janssen are thankful for the Chapter’s
Howard I. Abrams In-Home Care Program.
