Health Home Care Manager Helps Man Tackle Mobility Issues

“It was so hard getting around. Husar helped me.” -Franco, Health Home Client

Franco is a 60 year old man, who often faced challenges with his mobility. Working with Husar Joseph, his HeartShare Wellness Health Home Care Manager, Franco receives support to achieve better health. Husar Joseph isn’t just an expert in care coordination. “I was a doctor before I came to the U.S. and it gives me facility to talk to physicians on behalf of our clients,” Husar shared. Franco lives on the 12th floor of his building, which is especially difficult when the elevator is broken. Simply to reach his apartment, Franco needed to call 911 to have a team carry him upstairs. To resolve this problem, Husar has been fighting in housing court to have Franco moved to a lower floor. Navigat­ing the housing court is no easy task, but this is the kind of attention Husar provides to his 60 clients, each with their own unique health needs. Also, Franco’s asthma makes it difficult to wheel his chair. Husar helped Franco find a doctor who would recommend him for an elec­tric wheelchair, which he finally has received. “I had such a hard time getting around. Husar helped me so much,” said Franco.
