Through our Hope and Independence Fund, Walton Foundation for Independence provides financial assistance to individuals after catastrophic illness, disabling injury or life-long disabilities. This assistance enables individuals to obtain needed assistive technology, durable medical equipment, supplies and/or services that are required to perform daily living activities or fill a physical care crisis in the pursuit of living independently after discharge from:
- HealthSouth Walton Rehabilitation Hospital;
- Doctors Hospital Rehab Unit;
- Or a Walton Foundation/GRI affiliate organization, including NeuroRestorative of Georgia (formerly Walton West) and Harison Heights.
Requests are reviewed by Walton Foundation for Independence’s Advisory Council.
