Title: Disabilty Family from New Taipei County, Only Canaan take in [China Times 2014/05/19]

In April 2014, a 32 year old woman called to ask about long term care for the disabled. It turns out in a family of four, the woman who called is the only non-disabled member.

The location she lives is 430km (267 miles) from CDH. She claimed that she has been rejected by numerous organizations as no one is willing to evaluate their conditions, or they only want to take in her bother and sister, but not the mother.

One week later, the director took a 6 hour bus ride overnight to Taipei, and borrowed a car from a friend and drove another 90 minutes to their home deep in the mountains. After 30 minutes of observation and interaction, we agreed to take care of her disabled family.

Director Michael Tu commented, " Every disabled homes say they have lots of love for taking care of the disabled; however, many institutions do not want to care for older disabled because of the medical-related expenses associated with caring aging disabled. Canaan is willing to take the extra distance in helping those who truly needs help. Thanks to social welfare, this girl regained her freedom as we lifted the burden of caring for 3 disabled family members."

In mid-May, mom and the brother are happy campers at CDH. The sister with mental disability is currently living at home to accompany her grandmother.
