Decided last night that it was time to get a tranport rack for the power chair.
8:30 A.M. today I called the ALS assn. to see if they handled items like this.
10:00 A.M. Got a call to tell me that they only had one, but it was out.
12:00 another call, "That family is done with it, and would really like it picked up soon.
2:00 P.M. Call from a delivery driver asking if I would be home around 4:00 to accept delivery
4:00 P.M. Call from lost delivery driver:)
4:30 P.M. Accepted delivery.

8 hours! I can't come up with words to say how impressed I am. What a great resorce.

That's wonderful news! Efficiency is rare these days although I must say our ALS Association delivered everything we needed before it was needed - not a minute too early actually! I'm happy for you!

Wow, that's amazing! My mom was in Iowa but we were in such a rural area we struggled with knowing what to do and where to go for everything.

That is a great story. So glad it went well for you. I am also lucky to have clinic that helps so much with the handling of patients needs. It is an MDA/ALS clinic, we don't have an ALSA org, in Oklahoma, but the MDA people we have are awesome. I wish everyone could find the help they need. This monster is hard enough to deal with without the stress of getting what is needed.
