Lisabeth Belden
Hometown: Mercer Island, Washington

My husband's father was a WWII vet (Marine captain in the Pacific theatre). He developed dementia at age 90 and lived until 94. Two of his children had to move to another state, get new jobs, and one even live away from her own spouse to help take care of him.

I am 61, a bachelor, and no other relatives I can count on to be a caregiver. I've applied for Long-Term Care and was denied because of a pre-existing condition.
