JCS gives adults with dis­abil­i­ties a lift

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - ON THE SCENE -

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.
