Claudia woke up after being in a coma for three years and she awoke to a world that had changed. But there were some things that hadn't changed, like her husband Jim's love for her. He had visited her every day that she was in a coma. Another thing that hadn't changed was the reality of how hard it was to make ends meet. They lived on a combined fixed income of $1,500 a month. At the end of the month, all that was left was a mounting pile of debt. As the years had passed, daily tasks around the home had become harder for Jim. They found out about Big Sky Senior Services, but were hesitant at first because they knew that they couldn't afford help. Thanks to generous donors like you, we were able to supplement the hourly cost and provide services that they desperately needed. Services that would normally cost $25/hour or more were costing them only $4/hour.That's the difference our donors are making!
Our CAREgivers began going into their home, doing laundry and cleaning for them. Our Money Management (Payee) team was able to work on their behalf to reduce and eliminate some of their debt, while also setting them up on a budget. This was just the beginning of what our case manager, Sheryl, has been able to support them with. All of this was possible because of donors like you. We currently have a waiting list of over 75 people just like Claudia and Jim that need services, now more than ever we need your support.
A gift of $100 provides a month of services from our CAREgivers and Money Management team. Services that make an incredible difference in the lives of the seniors we serve. Now, Claudia and Jim are able to enjoy each other's company, without the immense stress of bills, while living in their home. Claudia is on the mend and they have been a true inspiration to our team.
