In August, with the help of Transitions Lift and Elevator Life Works installed an electric chair lift in one of our FHP homes in Georgetown. Dwehde Salyer, FHP shed tears of joy as she watched Alice, 76 try out the new lift! Alice has a newfound level of independence in her home now thanks to the stair lift. Alice is able to operate the lift herself to go upstairs to her room or come downstairs to joint her family whenever she wants without assistance. Alice loves to show off her lift to everyone who visits her home!
