Reader seeks help for diabetic wife


Kevin A. writes that he is unemployed and that his diabetic wife needs medical care.


Dear Kevin,

One option for your wife might be Axess Pointe Community Health Center, formerly called Akron Community Health Resources.  It is a not-for-profit health center that delivers primary medical, dental, mental health, and preventive health services.  Through this program, you can also find help with medications.

You might also apply for help through the Chronic Disease Fund.   You can click here to begin the application process and learn more about the fund. The Fund’s website says it has helped more than 350,000 people with chronic illnesses.

We’d also suggest you take this wonderful survey on the website of the National Council on Aging.  It takes about 10 minutes to complete, and at the end, it will give you a list of possible places to go for help close to home.

Good luck, and please let us know the outcome.
