Christeen from Minnesota
As a 94 year of age widow ,of five years, I have been a "receiver" from my daughter who as a single mom, did a wonderful job of raising three sons alone. My husband needed home care for several months, then had Home Hospice care for three weeks before he passed away. My daughter Barb Stone, who is a Home Health Nurse-Case Manager supplied the help needed to keep him home. She now gives me the needed help to live in the home I bought 70 years ago, which makes it possible to be independent since she lives next door to me and has for 34 years.
She does my shopping, driving me where needed and she and her three sons who all live nearby are always here when I need help. I have been an AARP Advocate at the State Legislature for 26 years now. This is a very important issue for me.
