When the yard got out of hand recently, Ginny called Area 10 Agency on Aging to see if she could get some help. She found help, alright! She was included in the first annual Safe At Home program. Volunteers from IU Health and Area 10 arrived one Saturday to assess and her home for safety hazards.
“They were all smiles,” said Ginny. “I don’t care how bad things are, if someone smiles at me, it makes my day. Every one of them did a wonderful job, with a smile on their face. They didn’t want anything in return. They just did their work quickly and moved on. They were so nice, and didn’t make me feel like I was asking for a handout. It meant the world to me!”
