One Family’s Story

Amanda’s Story, lovingly shared by her father, Greg Mohler.
My daughter, Amanda Mohler, is a beautiful young lady. As a kid, she created amazing acrylic paintings. She loved to smile and chase behind her older brother, Zach.

On March 12, 2004, 11-year-old Amanda was injured in a fall from the roof of our home. The fall caused serious traumatic brain injury.

After months at the hospital and in rehab, Amanda was confined to a wheelchair and could not purposefully move or speak. Two years later, we came to the heartbreaking realization we could no longer take care of Amanda at home.

Initially, we sought respite services for occasional breaks and to spend time with Zach. But then we heard about Horizons which provides 24-hour care. We visited Horizons and were immediately pleased with what we saw. In October 2006, an opening became available and we placed Amanda at Horizons. Since then, Amanda has been part of a family of medically fragile children at Horizons. Amanda and her friends attend school, take field trips and enjoy smart boards. The staff is wonderful and committed to quality care.

Horizons’ proximity allows us to visit Amanda often and to arrange for her to come home for family visits. It is hard to express the comfort we have in knowing that when our daughter is not with us, she is being cared for by people who also love her and who are committed to meeting her everyday needs.

For special needs families like ours, Horizons meets a crucial need — a safe, caring “home away from home” for our medically fragile child. We appreciate the home that Amanda has found at Horizons.
