Caller was a 65 year old man living alone in the Belleville area and suffering from long term physical disabilities. The client was bound to his wheelchair and was just recently released from the hospital with a severe breathing condition that will require the use of a breathing tube. The client was very concerned as he did not have enough money to cover the cost of the device but he knew that it is essential for his well being. The agent went over a variety of options with the client and was able to connect the client to the Assistive Devices Program, a program that will help the client cover some of the costs related to his needs. The client was very grateful as he was not aware that such a program exists and felt as though he was going to be able to access the medical supplies that he needs to overcome his medical condition.
