Thanks to friends

My husband has been waiting 18 months for a nursing home bed. In January this year I had to have respite care for him while I recovered from a cataract surgery. In our rural community of 25,000 there is only one designated bed available. Because of an outbreak, that bed was not available and he had to go a facility that is an hour and a half drive from our home. This meant an additional cost for the accessibility transport as well as the challenge of driving for visiting. Fortunately, we had a mild winter and we managed thanks to friends.
