Noteworthy Accomplishments

Fiscal Year February 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018,  NMDSO is very proud to report that we:
Participated in a series of disease specific support group meetings
Assisted 4 families in need of long term care solutions by helping them understand basic needs and area facilities that would meet their needs. The final decision is as always,  up to the families.
Coordinated with State Agencies to provide assistance to 3 families in need of assistance which included a ramp, home care and non medical supplies.
Purchased and delivered medical equipment/supplies to 5 people in need and not covered by insurance or the insurance would not cover the cost of the equipment
Hosted 2017 NMDSO Outreach and Educational Summit in August attended by 75 people and have received 75 requests to make this an annual event. We are planning another event in 2018 due to the positive response.
Participated in 3 local Community events to promote awareness and raise funds.
Completed a study to determine a course of action to open Jenn’s Respite Care with the goal to open in 2020.

Started the research necessary to develop a long term care guide to assist families looking for a new home for their loved one.
In 2018 we plan to continue and build on our 2017 accomplishments, publish the NMDSO Long Term Care Guide, finalize the Jenn’s Respite Care Facility plans, and raise the money for the respite care facility, and general operations.
