Accidents can entirely disrupt a family’s daily activities and long term goals.
When Naomi and her daughter were hit by a car while walking across the street, Naomi broke both of her legs and needed to recover at the hospital, away from her family. On top of that, she tested positive for COVID-19, which meant she had to stay for longer. Her husband Ed needed help to continue managing the household, the kids’ activities, and his studies at the same time.
Newark Day Center sent a parent aide to help the family out. The aide assisted with daily household functions, helped both parents stay on track with their studies, and kept the kids company when Ed went out for errands.
The family was able to navigate smoothly through the accident, and they are now doing well and staying healthy.
