Jeff’s Story:

Jeff is a Veteran who resides in Edgewood. He suffers from diabetes and was unable to walk outside of his apartment due to extreme pain. He required custom-made shoes in size 18 that could be adjusted for the wounds on his feet. Without other resources available, and due to his inability to walk to even the nearest store for food and supplies, he was no longer able to take care of himself. His social worker was encouraging him to move to the nursing home. When his home health providers learned about his needs, the Alice Foundation was able to help. They were able to fund the custom-fit shoes he needed to be independent and comfortable. Jeff remains living independently today.
