Disability Grant To Help Louvenia Ease Pain Of Multiple Disabilities

by Louvenia Greathouse
(San Bernardino, CA, USA)

I am a 61-year-old-retired lady and a homeowner currently residing in San Bernardino, CA.

I have two children, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Disability Issues

I retired in June 2009 due to multiple medical conditions, which have left me totally disabled.

- chronic pain
- osteoporosis arthritis
- sarcoidosis
- peripheral neuropathy
- torn rotor cuffs
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- high blood pressure
- left knee pain
- right knee, groin, thigh and hip pain
- left and right shoulder pain
- neck and upper back pain

Financial Hardship

I receive Social Security Benefits (SSA) and pension/disability Insurance.

Also, I receive meals on wheel.

After paying bills and living expenses I do not have enough left to afford the costs of co-payments of medications, in-home supportive services, home modifications, vehicle modifications and car repairs, dental insurance, and gardening.

Income Efforts

I have applied for In-home Supportive Services, but I have a high share of cost.

I am in the process of contacting other charities and government agencies I think can help.

I contacted United Disabilities, but they only assist consumers in Pennsylvania.

Specific Needs

I would like to be able to acquire benefits or a grant for the following needs:

- personal care assistance
- threshold ramp for front door
- lift for bath tub and grab bar
- dental insurance
- lift or carrier equipment for mobility chair
- sprinkler system for yard and gardener

With these accommodations, I would be able to function safely, live independently and enjoy life mentally, spiritually and emotionally as well as physically.

Are you my lost twin?

Hi Louvenia,

I read your summary and thought wow, it sounds so much like my own situation. You are close to my age and I used to live in San Bernardino. In fact, I was going for my Masters at CalState San Bernardino, so it's my old stomping ground.

You are asking for the basic needs you deserve. The resources in the workbook should guide you to those items. It may seem overwhelming at first but take it a step at the time. If you run into any roadblocks just write and we'll help you get through it.

Here is a link for you, Louvenia, to help you maximize your benefits:

Maximize Benefits

This resource (all of it is free) will lead you to maximize your social security benefits, help you get grants, help you with health care (I believe you needed dental) and other benefits. Joining is free. I know Brian (who runs it); he's a great guy that really likes to help the disabled as much as Don.

Any questions, give me a jingle. Many blessings to you and my prayers also.
