There are seasons to the year, with fall officially beginning later this week, but there are no seasons when it comes to assisting people with disabilities. Read on to learn more about how consumers’ lives are impacted by working with Disabled Resource Services.
Thankful Consumer

“Wow! I can see you! I can see your face!” Sharon, a DRS Vision Matters consumer who is legally blind, had just tried on her eSight electronic glasses for the legally blind for the first time. As a person with Macular Degeneration, she was overwhelmed with excitement about what she could see around her. Immediately, she talked about all of the things she anticipated doing again, like quilting, watching TV, and reading.
eSight glasses enable people with central vision loss to see more clearly so they can lead a more active and independent life. eSight is worn like a normal pair of glasses and houses a high-speed, high-definition camera that captures everything at which the wearer is looking.

Fun at 2 MPH - Loveland Corn Roast Parade
We had great time last month at Loveland's Corn Roast Parade. Thanks to all our parade participants for helping bring awareness that Disabled Resource Services also serves Loveland and southern Larimer Country. Special thanks to  Houska Automotive Service  for loaning us their '63 Cadillac convertible.

Top 5 Requests for Toiletries

1. Toothbrushes
2. Razors
3. Toothpaste
4. Bar soap

Personal hygiene is an important aspect of self-esteem and self-confidence. If you have unopened toiletries or extra toilet paper that you can spare, please consider donating them by dropping them by either of the DRS offices. Questions? Please don't hesitate to contact us .
