Your gifts help patients get through a crisis
Every day, donations to the “You’re Special” Fund keep someone safely in their home. “You’re Special” can assist CarePartners patients in crisis situations, and can help low-income patients pay for necessary items that are not covered by insurance, such as hip kits, grab bars, glucose test strips, medications, and tub transfer benches. The “You’re Special” Fund is used only to pay for expenses that are not covered by any other source.
Each year more and more people benefit from the fund, and more people join in to donate to the fund.
A “You’re Special” Success Story
This “days of the week” clock assisted an elderly client to remain in her own home. Her physician and family were considering a nursing home placement because she lived alone and couldn’t remember what day it was. This caused difficulty in taking her medications correctly from her pillbox. The day clock allows her to cross-reference the day on the pillbox to her clock, so she can tell if she has taken her medications for that day. This intervention allowed her to continue living safely in her own home.
Funding from “You’re Special” is available only to CarePartners patients. If you think you might be eligible for funding, please contact your Care Manager.
