Barbara is 89 years old, lives in her own home and no longer drives. "When you stop driving you need the services of others and this program (FIA) is a blessing." Lauren Bretz was matched with Barbara during her summer home from college. When Lauren returned to school in the fall, her mother, Amy, began visiting Barbara each week. Amy takes Barbara to the grocery store, to run errands and often they stop for lunch. Barbara agrees the FIA program has helped her feel less lonely, have a better quality of life and feel more confident in her ability to remain in her own home.
