The Renewal of Louisa
Louisa came to Water Street after a tragedy in her life left her without a place to live. She was paired with a Life Coach and a Case Manager, and the three worked as a team to discover a few key medical needs in Louisa’s life. She gained free access to doctors, nurses, dental hygienists and behavioral health specialists to help manage her depression, diabetes and oral health. Her medical visits were more than she expected. “You could have the greatest doctors in the world, but because everything is so professional they can’t go beyond it [and pray with a patient].
When you are going through something, you need the spiritual,” said Louisa. She relates praying with the medical, dental and behavioral healthcare staff at Water Street to her progress.
