Waldo Couple Needs Assistance

$1,630 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 49 people in 4 months
Ardythe and Bob (Christiana and Chabala ) ARE HOME!!

This couple {80 and 85 years young} have been married over 55 years!! Help us show them the same love and loyalty ️ they've shown each other by updating their home and making it safe for them.

Their home has been getting fantastic face lift BUT there is still work to be done. Big list items and labor have been donated but materials for installation and adaptions to fit this great Waldo Home are costly.

Help us keep out-of-pocket costs for Bob and Ardythe to a minimum! We could all be in their shoes with one debilitating fall ⛑!! Luckily Ardythe is getting stronger and is able to be in her home so LET'S KEEP OUR NEIGHBORS SAFE.

The plans for the ramp are being fine-tuned {with Ardythe's input} and WILL BE BUILT!!

Work we'd like to still get done includes, but is not limited to: Sturdy hand rails up the front steps and safety bars Inside the house; interior paint; manageable organization system!!!!

We have received a lot of great suggestions for continued long term assistance for Bob and Ardythe and will research all avenues for the best fit for them . For right now, we are still going to their house and helping (we are 5 houses away).

Please continue sharing our story/campaign and thank you for keeping us all in your thoughts. ❤️

THE STORY : In June, Ardythe, 80 yrs old, broke her leg. The pin they inserted penetrated her hip and forced her into a high intensity rehab facility.
Her mostly  dependent husband, Bob, 85 year old, Korean War Vet, was subsequently forced to leave their home, when she went to the hospital, and live apart from Ardythe in an assisted living facility in another part of town.
Following at least two surgeries, Ardythe worked on rehabilitation for months, until she was finally well enough to go to the same facility as Bob.
Now they're ready to come home but their home is I'm need of many repairs and updates.....one of the remaining, costly and GLARING need is a ramp for the back entry into the house! They use walkers right now and there is NO way to these stairs with walkers.
As a neighbor, and someone thankful of his military service, I want to get their home the repairs and updates is needs and they deserve. If they want to be home, they should be able to be home!

Soooo I will set up the food train for Bob and Ardythe myself.

I know everyone is busy and that includes me BUT basic human kindness must prevail. I work 50-70 hours weekly just like everyone else and I’m tired too but being a neighbor doesn’t have constraints. We must continue to care.

We took on the project with Bob and Ardythe under no pressure from anyone. We will come out with a lot of time and money invested with no repayment of even labor charges on most of it. We’ve been on the job for over a month yet we are not done.

The only money taken from the go fund me campaign so far has gone to pay for construction hardware, knobs/pulls for the cabinets and other similar items. The kitchen still needs brighter lighting and back splash to name a few things. The ramp should begin in April so it’s not too late to contribute to the go fund me Acct.

Watch for info on the meal train and please help out if you can. I’d be happy to pick up anything you have if you cannot deliver it to their house. Ardythe is greatful for all the food neighbors have brought over brought over so far.

Please feel free to contact us with questions.

Anyone willing to set up a meal train for Bob and Ardythe???

They have not used the stove yet....I think it’s been quite a while since Ardythe has used one AND we’re still getting dishes unpacked and washed!

She uses the microwave somewhat regularly but it may be a good idea for a dinner every other day or so. They have been served meals at their assisted living facilities since June so they need time to acclimate into preparing and cooking meals. It has also been too cold/windy for them to go out and eat.

For right now, this is for
signing up for a meal train
not for suggestions. Ardythe is a very strong minded, independent woman so we're going slow.

Thank you!
