Veteran Needs Elder Care

Today, we would like to share a “Case of the Week” from our Sarasota FL Office, as told by Bob Graham, our Regional Manager.

The daughter of a veteran approached Veterans’ Outreach for assistance on the suggestion of the Florida American Legion. Her father is at a point in life whereas he can no longer live on his own. He needs to enter an assisted living unit due to crippling heart disease and diabetes. He suffers these ailments as a result of Agent Orange exposure in Vietnam, and cannot function on his own. His daughter has been helping him but his problems are now such that she can no longer cope, and is trying to put together sufficient resources to help him on his rent – we were the first to quickly commit to assistance.
