Helen recently became the sole home healthcare provider for her elderly and bedridden mother after her son Michael passed away from a massive heart attack. After Michael’s unexpected death, Helen was left on her own to provide constant supervision and round-the-clock care for her mother. Unable to leave her home or get any rest, Helen was becoming mentally and physically exhausted. Because Helen could not afford alternative home healthcare, this grant provided funds to pay for a home healthcare provider to cover for Helen one afternoon per week for ten weeks for a much-needed break.
