Rebecca West was born with Spina Bifida and has major paralysis of her left side from the waist down, as well as neuropathy and weakness on the right side. Because of complete muscle atrophy in her left leg she randomly falls between 3 and 7 times a week and has broken her foot previously. She has applied for IHSS (In-Home Support Services) benefits which is a program specifically designed for disabled and elderly to be assessed and get care in their home. IHSS social worker has assessed Rebecca's condition and has denied her services. As a friend and caregiver I would like to appeal this decision made by IHSS social worker so that Rebecca can be approved for the services she needs and is more than qualified for.
