Debarah Clinton

In the past seven years Debarah Clinton had at least 6 mini-strokes.  She currently has to walk with a cane and at times a walker.  Debarah's caregiver shared that she worried about Debarah when she was not in the home with her.  The conditions in Debarah's bathroom were such that she could have fallen and hurt herself at any time.

Crissman - Family to Family Fund Project
