Angela Vance is happy to be in her own home today, something that wouldn’t have been possible without Amramp, a division of Pathfinder Services dedicated to providing modular wheelchair ramps and other accessibility solutions.
When a knee surgery in December 2014 led to several complications and a long recovery at a nursing home, Angela longed to be back in her own home. Because her home lacked wheelchair accessibility, however, and because Angela lacked the resources to make that possible, recovering at home just wasn’t an option.
That’s when Angela heard about Amramp and its grant program that would make ramp installation possible for qualified applicants. One phone call to the Amramp staff offered Angela the hope she was longing for. Once the staff determined that Angela would qualify for a grant, she wasted no time in getting the process rolling.
“They started the grant application right away,”
“Within a week, I was approved for the grant and the ramp was up.”
Of course, Angela was thrilled with how quickly the process moved, but she was especially impressed when the Amramp installers made a visit to her at the nursing home before the installation.
“They even measured my wheelchair to make sure they had the right size ramp,”
It was this kind of attention to detail, and such a quick turnaround, that made a real impact on Angela.
“I wouldn’t have gotten out of that nursing home without that ramp,”
“There wouldn’t have been any way I could have gotten in my house.”
Today, Angela is able to rehabilitate in the comfort of her own home, and she easily comes and goes as she pleases. Thanks to Amramp, getting to doctor’s appointments and the occasional trip to the park is something she can accomplish with ease.
“Just regular living is all I want right now,”
says Angela, something that Amramp made possible.
“I just can’t say enough about how much that ramp means to me.”
