Albert received help from MaineGeneral’s Horizon Program with purchasing a rolling walker that allowed him to go the Fryeburg Fair for the first time in years. This client is on oxygen and mostly stays home with an in-home worker who comes to visit him throughout the week. He explained that he can’t afford to get out much, but really enjoyed this time with family at the fair. It was a little busy, but a really nice day and he said it was good to be able to get out. He felt like he would not have been able to go without the walker and he could sit down and rest when he needed to.
