Translation Services for Medical and Educational Assistance
By offering translation services, we provide a communication bridge for connecting individuals and families with social workers, physicians and teachers. We assist with asking questions, filling out paperwork, navigating and understanding different areas provided by social services, healthcare and our education system, all of which helps them to become more self-sustaining.
We work with individuals and families in many different areas. From translation services for medical appointments, follow-up phone calls between our clients and the clinic, as well as assisting with medical forms, we are honored and grateful to journey with them during their most private and trying times.
The Dental Dental Van comes to Brown County a few times each year to serve children who may not be able to pay for services in a traditional dental office. Last year, Sister Myra took a mother and her twin girls to the van for a checkup. The girls’ teeth were badly decayed and in need of immediate care. Sister was able to locate a local dentist who was willing to work with the family for several months to give these girls healthy teeth. A partnership of the Presentation Sisters, Delta Dental Van and a local dentist offered this act of love and provided hope for a family in need.
Sister Consuelo received a call from Rita (name changed), for whom she had provided medical translation in the past. Rita wasn’t feeling well and they were concerned she might have cancer. Because of COVID-19, Sister could make her appointments but could no longer accompany her. The clinic Rita visited used the language line, but Rita had more questions when she returned home. Sister Consuelo was able to call the clinic to get the answers the family needed and also able to convey the test results that told Rita she was cancer free.
