My great-grandfather worked at three nuclear sites: the Nevada Test Site, the Portsmouth Diffusions Plant in Ohio, and the Hanford Site in Washington. He was a hard worker, a man of great integrity, and had a strong sense of justice. From the time I was born he was always there, not only to help raise me but to be a best friend. He taught me lessons about life and how to swim, climb trees and ride horses. He showed me the value of dedication and purpose.
My great-grandfather’s persistence and dedication to helping others led him to be among the first to file a class-action lawsuit against the Department of Energy over health risks from working at the Nevada Test Site. After years of fighting for justice, compensation for former workers like him was awarded under the federal Energy Employee’s Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA).
The program includes lump sum compensation as well as up to 24 hours per day of in-home care. When I got older and my great-grandfather got sicker from the illness that was caused by his work at the nuclear sites I was back from college and able to see him every day. I saw firsthand the care he was receiving from his home health care team and realized the positive impact this care had on his quality of life.
My husband Xander and I started Trusted Ally Home Care to carry on the legacy of my great-grandfather Johney and to help others like him. I am constantly reminded of him when I go out to see our clients… the pride people took in their jobs, the love and admiration they receive from their families. At Trusted Ally it’s more than just a business, we know what you and your loved ones are going through on a daily basis. We hope that you will let us help you and your family receive the maximum benefits you deserve.
