Sometimes we take for granted the essentials we have in our lives, such as the ability to speak our minds, a vehicle to get around, or a comfortable chair in the living room. Our clients’ daily life experiences count on the essentials of therapy equipment to meet their needs, such as:
• A foam wedge to relieve pressure and help build upper body strength and head control
• A gait trainer for comfortable alignment while walking
• A touch-activated switch to turn on an electronic device
This highly specialized equipment requires frequent replacement and, as you would imagine, is very expensive – it will cost Marklund close to $32,000 in 2018.
Marklund annually provides services to nearly 300 individuals through residential, educational, and vocational programs. These children and adults are medically fragile and require assistance with all activities of daily living.
Our fiscal year-end is quickly approaching and we need your help. Your generous support will ensure that Marklund can provide high quality therapy equipment for those who need it most.
From all of us at Marklund, thank you!
