Immanuel United received a request for assistance. An elderly couple needed a ramp to get in and out of their home. The husband has mobility issues, and his wife recently fell and broke her pelvis and tail bone.
They reached out to other organizations in the community, but were unable to find timely assistance. They heard we may be able to help, and so reached out.
Our Mission Team had a brief meeting and performed a site survey. The couple chose a lift option to be installed in their garage. This was a very good option for upstate New York, due to the many months of ice and snow. An outdoor ramp would be very dangerous.
The platform and lift was installed by our team, and the Knit n Stitch folks were instrumental in providing spiritual support with the sharing of Prayer Shawls!
The retired couple live in Chittenango and the husband is a retired Methodist pastor still serving in the Mohawk Valley.
