6 o’clock to 11 o’clock

-A particular patient with diabetes needed help with meal planning. We helped with a grocery card and talked with her about foods she should and should not eat, and went grocery shopping together.  We read labels together and budgeted the purchase of her food.

-The blood pressure cuffs that have been purchased have saved many trips to the ER.  Patients are checking at home and calling the office or the doctor on call.  This has been a great tool for providers to help tweak blood pressure medications.

-A patient, who was just diagnosed with severe congestive heart failure, needs to be able to monitor his blood pressure. The fund helped purchase a blood pressure cuff for him.  His wife called and was so pleased. She feels she has a tool to keep a closer watch on his health.

-The fund has helped with eyeglasses. One gentleman had his exam, but could not afford the cost of the frames.  One of our chronic care coordinators worked with a local business who gave him a great deal, and the patient is very happy.

-The medical alert necklaces/bracelets have been a blessing for some of our more challenged patients.  One in particular has bad lows and is unable to communicate what is wrong.  He wears his medical alert necklace all the time and states, “I feel better with it on.”

-Some items we have bought to help are: compression stockings, microwaves, air conditioners and number one!!!!!  Helping folks get the medications they need.
