Peter: Outfitting a Home for Disability
My case manager Susan Kropa has been very helpful in getting me comfortable with my disability. In the beginning she helped me connect with daily services throughout GSIL and has been able to get me regular visits from the visiting nurses.
When we were planning my new accessible home, she had a list of contacts and information where I could get the types of products i need, such as automatic door openers. She helped me with the application process to get funding for the same. Susan had resources at her fingertips for help with finding an elevator seat on my new wheelchair.
Susan is always available for advice to adjust caregiver hours or any other issues with daily care and periodically checks in to see how she can help.
Life Coping and the help of Susan Kropa make it easier for me to achieve my goal of living independently.
