Client Spotlight: Marge & John

Last year, Marge and John joined Lori's Hands to get some extra assistance around the house and to complete their grocery shopping. John has Alzheimer's Disease and, as his wife and full time caregiver, Marge found it was difficult to complete these essential day to day tasks.

Looking back, Marge says that when she heard about Lori's Hands, she couldn't believe the help that was being offered. Shortly after Marge and John joined Lori's Hands, they began receiving weekly visits from Tim and Judy, who now regularly help with light housework and errands and provide companionship. Today, Marge & John say the students' visit is by far the best part of their week

According to Marge, the student volunteers have "made life more bearable. They have taken a burden off of me and kept me from burning out. They do something for my morale."

Lori's Hands is thrilled to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of individuals living with chronic illness in our community. If you know of someone who may be interested in joining, visit our website to make a referral.
Students in the Community
On August 29, 2018, club president Judy Yang and other Lori's Hands volunteers participated in "Turn The Towns Teal" with Newark Mayor Polly Sierer in order to kick off ovarian cancer awareness month. The students and mayor hung teal bows and handed packets out to local businesses along Main Street to promote ovarian cancer awareness.
