Barbara Schaefer has been volunteering since InMotion opened its doors after attending a Cleveland Heights Parkinson’s Support Group where former Executive Director Lacy Roth spoke and mentioned that when InMotion opened they would be looking for volunteers.
Since coming to InMotion, Barbara says, “I am continually impressed by the caregivers and how kind and supportive they are of those they support. I am also impressed with how helpful and engaged Ben, Dan, and the staff is with clients.”
Before coming to InMotion, Barbara, who is retired and resides in Mayfield Heights, kept busy teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), traveling, working on her genealogy, participating in clinical trials, and exercising.
Describing her volunteer experience to date as “enriching, fun and challenging,” Barbara enjoys the sense of community at InMotion and the wide variety of activities available, stating “There is something for everyone!”
“InMotion certainly has given me a lot of hope that there is help for those with movement disorders,” says Barbara.
