Yesterday we helped out Heart to Heart, the medical equipment program at St. Gertrude’s Church, 1420 West Granville, Chicago. We picked up some of their excess walkers, canes, etc. And took them to the Father Gary Graf Center, 510 10th St., Waukegan, to replenish their medical equipment lending closet. Brenda Arrielo, shown here with Bob Shea, has been very helpful as we’ve gotten up and running.
A rollator is a wonderful thing. Rollators cost more than $100 in the store, and you have to wait who-knows-how-many weeks to get one through Medicare. This lady was happy to get hers from St. Philip Neri. She was having a problem with losing her balance and falling down at home. She’s shown with the manager of St Philip Neri’s lending closet, Meisha Robinson.
