Hometown: Detroit, Michigan
I know first-hand the stress and financial cost to my sister caring for our aging father and my husband and I in caring for his aging father.
Hometown: Chassell, Michigan
I'm exhausted and financially drained. Trying to care for father needing care 24/7 and I need to work full-time and part-time to make ends meet. It is a shame that my father who has been worked to the bone all his life to own what he worked for and paid taxes, must let all it all go in order to obtain the same long-term care services an someone who never worked a day in their lives and lived off the system. He has been living with cancer and end stage renal failure due to the cancer. It is sickening that his Medicare supplemental insurance is over $400 per month.
