Quotes

"We examined 9-1-1 address response data from January 2013 through June 2014 to compare the impact of the fall prevention team's home modifications and how many of those addresses have since called 9-1-1 for a fall. We then compared that rate to the overall rate of patients 65+ years old in the area who called 9-1-1 for a fall during that same timeframe" said Dino Curzi, epidemiologist at American Medical Response who has been working collaboratively with Meals on Wheels and Senior Outreach Services
"I get the west sun on my porch in the afternoon, so there's no way I can sit out on the porch in the afternoon," said Dicken. "If I want to sit out on the porch, it has to be in the morning or after the sun goes down."
"Funding has really come down over the last two years," she said. "This year, we received about $35,348. Last year, it was $46,573, and we got $59,609 in 2012. We're just steadily dropping."
Tara Nielsen of Cayman's ARK was delighted with the donation. "A huge thank you to the Maples and CalderCalder Corporate Services team. We are appreciative of everything you have all done for this family in need" she said
