Senior home improvement (shi) project for 2016
Mr. Ming Lai is a senior/disabled living in Lawrenceville, GA.
My name is Chin and this is my father Ming Lai. Ming is 72 years old. He is a caring, compassionate person and always loves to help people in any way that he can. He loves gardening and grew many vegetables to share with his neighbors. His self-taught guitar and accordion and everyone admire his talent.
Ming retired in 2013 to enjoy spending more time with his grandchildren, family and garden.
Unfortunately on October 2013 he had a stroke and on February 2015 he was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. Ming completed Chemotherapy on October 2015. He was applauded for his strong will and his doctor called him a “Strong Fighter.”
Ming’s past illness and hospitalization effected Ming’s speech, daily living activity and mobility.
He has been living in the split level home for 18 years. Due to mobility issue with stairs difficulty he only stays at second level. The only place for him to sit outside is the deck. He likes to sit on the deck, enjoy the nature. But the woods on the deck are rotted with rusty nails, and it is unsafe for him to walk on.
The countertop that houses the sink has been leaking and his wife, who is the full time caregiver, has difficulty cleaning the water spills due to knee problem and has limited sink spaces to prepare meals.
Through Gwinnett County Senior Services I was referred to call Sunrise of Hope for help. They will be helping to replace the deck and countertop for Ming so that he and his wife have a safe place to live.
Your donation will be greatly appreciated.
