Helping people who are facing debilitating physical ailments continue their recovery efforts to improve their quality of life.
Delivering individualized and effective exercise programming using a pool as well as traditional indoor strength training.
Improving the functional fitness of those afflicted will make their activities of daily living more manageable.
There exists a need for individualized exercise programming for people who are suffering from debilitating events such as strokes, advanced neuropathy, car accidents, spinal surgeries, Parkinsons disease and Alzheimers. People who have been discharged from physical therapy but are still in dire need of personalized training.
Many who have been discharged have been prematurely because their insurance allotments run out. Most, still unable to walk or even transfer from their bed to a chair, are expected to continue recovery efforts on their own. The cost of continued rehab in a physical therapy setting can exceed $120 per visit if they choose private pay. More often than not the hardship is just too great. Frustration and depression settles in and they end up just giving up.
Typically their only source of income is some sort of disability benefit, social security or a small pension if they had already been retired. Their monthly income just isn't enough to cover the extra cost of personal training even though it's just a fraction of the cost of physical therapy.
Help Them Walk Again is a program developed to help offset the cost of personal training. All contributions go directly towards subsidizing personal training costs for those unable to afford it. Based on their monthly revenue vs. expenses, subsidies will be dispersed based on what they can afford. Only with your generosity and ongoing support can an endeavor like this work. Those that have been left behind by our current medical system will be able to receive the help they truly need.
