Elder Care Support for Alfredo & Luisa

Elder Care Support for Alfredo & Luisa

From Amarillys Rodriguez

I'm raising money to help my parents with home health aid assistance while we secure more permanent resources. Your support will help us pay for a few hours of additional personal care per week for about two months.

Update #1

Wow! We have reached and exceeded our original goal in just a few days! Whether folks could give or not, I'm overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from friends new and old, near and far. Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for all who have contributed, shared messages of love and strength, and are sending healing thoughts and prayers to our family.

After delays due to the pandemic and anxiety, our dad recently had a check-in with his primary care provider, as well as home visits from a nurse, physical therapist, and a social worker from the insurance company to assess his needs. While he likely is not eligible for free services, we are hopeful that these steps will provide some referrals or pathways to stable, affordable assistance. Meanwhile, we have been preparing for my mother's surgery with my sisters and I making plans for time off to help at home as my mom awaits details on the day's schedule from the hospital.

With time left before my mom's surgery, and my birthday, and Parkinson's Awareness Month going through April, we are raising the campaign goal. Any funds over our initial $2000 goal will go towards:

- Paying Tina an increased rate for the agreed upon schedule
- Potentially adding more time with Tina if it works for her schedule
- Paying for any service or program fees, medical equipment, supplies or related items not covered by insurance

Let's see how far we can go!

Thank you!
