Our Stories: Beverly

Beverly on rampBeverly, age 62, has severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and uses a rolling chair to move about in her house and can walk short distances using a cane. Although Beverly has a power chair to make traveling in the community easier, she was unable to use it because of the stairs leading to her home.

Disability Network partnered with Habitat for Humanity to provide Beverly with a portable ramp which was the best solution given the space available between her house and driveway. Beverly is now able to access services and enjoy a more independent life outside of her home using her power chair.
