Holocaust Survivor Assistance Care ManagerMarch 25th, 2019 - Yolande Wijtenburg
Goodman JFS’ Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program arranged for a client to receive cataract surgery on both eyes. As a result, the client reported that the procedure improved her quality of life tremendously. Moreover, the client decided to represent Holocaust survivors on the March of the Living. This allowed her to be able to share her story with teenage participants, providing her with the opportunity to leave her legacy with the next generation through this moving experience. The care manager was also greatly impacted by the fact that this surgery made such a difference in her client’s life, and it helped her to realize how rewarding this work is for her.
