ADAPTING will be launching another diabetes awareness program this fall. The program will target our youth. If your school or organization have an interest in such a program please contact us at the above-listed telephone number. A bilateral amputee is the presenter. This helps emphasize the impoi]rtance of a healthy diet.
Presently, the ADAPTING Board of Directors is looking for a larger commercial space where more activities can be held in our own facilities.
IIf you are on disability or are in a qualifying low income bracket there may be available for you free grant money to improve your home, get certain types of medical equipment, seek an education in a qualifying institution or training facility and much more.

A new program we are now launching is to provide visitor services for people in hospitals, assisted living facilities and certain categories of senior living facilities. This activity is not only for peer support but includes companion-type sevices where we listen to a care receiver and try to benefit the person receiving the visitation.
On occassion where possible we may arrange different types of entertainment.
Brief training for care givers is required prior to performing the visits.

An aim of ADAPTING is to reintegrate people with disabilities into society. Not only is work an important goal but the restoration of self-esteem, confidence and recreation must also become an important part of a disabled persons life.
The family must learn how to cope with the new situation. There is normally a major adjustment for everyone. Questions need to be answered. New amputees can suffer from grief and depression and find peer support a very crucial activity for recovery. Won't you consider helping the Adapting program. Call today and find out how YOU can help. Call 503-608-0661 today.
