JCS gives adults with disabilities a lift
Jarden Consumer Solutions (JCS) recently presented Pathways to Independence with a donation of $7,100 for the installation of a Patient Lift and Transfer System. Representatives from Jarden Consumer Solutions Community Fund met and interacted with program participants as they toured Pathways.
“The employees who support the Jarden Consumer Solutions Community Fund are proud to partner with Pathways to Independence to help make a difference in the lives of its program participants,” said Rocki Rockingham, JCS vice president of community relations and communications. “Pathways performs an important service for the community and we encourage others to join us in supporting their work.”
Pathways to Independence assists individuals with severe speech and physical disabilities live as independently as possible. The Patient Lift and Transfer System will be used to transport program participants to and from a wheelchair, therapy equipment, for repositioning, or to move freely around other locations at Pathways. Such a system provides improved mobility and quality of life to individuals who are unable to stand or transfer independently.
