stories

"The Elks Home Service Program has given us the time and attention we needed to explore various medical options for our child. The nurse has been there to listen and give emotional support and direction."

 

"Thanks to the Elks Nurse, we were able to locate some used equipment for our daughter. Also she helped us attend a conference on Rett Syndrome."

 

"Our family's quality of life improved after the Elks Nurse helped us get a shower chair so that we could get our daughter from the bed to the shower."

 

"After much time and many frustrating meetings at our child's school, the Elks Nurse attended the last meeting and was able to get the school to agree to make some changes regarding safety issues."

 

"The Elks Nurse has been there to give us direction, guide us, allow us to make our own decisions, and be a friend. Being a parent of a child who isn't like other children isn't easy. She gives me hope and encourages me to be strong. I have no family support and don't know what I'd do without their kind efforts."
