THE FINAL PRODUCT OF BUILDING THE WHEELCHAIR RAMP

My product was assisting on building a wheelchair ramp for a Parkinson's disease patient. The purpose of this project was to assist in building this ramp while also learning more about how the patients physical strength and mobility has declined. An addition to my product was also to interview her physical therapist on she has slowly declined over time. The physical therapist comes to her house every week but, during the government shutdown and for another additional week he didn't come so I could interview him. I have tried to get in touch with him several other way but has not returned my call or email. This particular patient has never been doing physical therapy like she should. She complains of how she is too sick and weak and refuses physical therapy.
