26 Aug Connecting our Neighbor to Hope and Help
BEAM prides itself on identifying the needs of our clients and connecting them with proper resources. A few months ago a client was referred to BEAM by our partners at the Sulzbacher Beaches Clinic. John Doe has advanced kidney disease, coupled with mobility issues and no method of transportation. While the care this client requires was outside of the scope of what BEAM’s Paths to Wellness Program offers, Rachel was able to connect a registered dietitian volunteer (who has this specific area of expertise) with John and she agreed to visit him twice a month. Volunteer Terry, alongside a Sulzbacher community health worker, now bring John groceries from the BEAM food pantry, assist with routine medical check-ups and provide intensive behavioral counseling. Although John has a long road to recovery, he is grateful for his individualized support as he works hard to overcome this disease.
