Hometown: Fort Smith, Arkansas
I am 60 yrs old and totally disabled and long term care is too expensive for me. Nursing homes are terrible and only the owners make money. As a former medical personnel, I would rather die than live in one. Long term care would give me a better alternative as to who would take care of me when needed.

As person with Multiple Sclerosis, I can see gradual deterioration, and know that it is only a matter of time until I will need access to services. If something were to happen to my spouse, that would become vital to me. As much as I hate the idea of being dependent, realistically I know that it will happen. For both my physical and mental well-being I need to know that help will be available.
