Terri decided to seek services from Trinity In-Home Care to help her maintain motivation and health. Her Trinity In-Home Care employee, Valerie, helps Terri with daily chores, such as vacuuming, washing dishes, and running errands. With Valerie’s help, Terri completes more of these tasks herself than she would be able to otherwise. As Terri puts it, “I can do a lot of these things myself; I just need motivation. Valerie’s great.” Valerie also aids Terri in keeping her health in check. Since Terri is diabetic, assistance with shopping for nutritious groceries and reminders to take her medication are imperative. Terri works for the Kansas Union on the university campus, so she appreciates the extra time Trinity In-Home Care's assistance provides when she is at home. “I get the cleaning and shopping done when Valerie’s here, so I can have some time to watch game shows or go to dinner with my friends.” What does Terri like most about TIHC’s services? “It gives me more freedom. I can get the help I need and still live independently.”
