Holidays can be tough
Since Barry’s dementia diagnosis, holidays have been pretty tough. This Christmas, I felt alone and overwhelmed because Barry needs a lot more care now. I worry all day about what he is doing at home while I work. I know he needs more days at the Adult Day Care
Center, but we can’t afford it.
Then help arrived
I was surprised and thankful to receive a gift of money collected for us by a number of people in our Good Samaritan Church congregation. The amount is enough to add a second day a week for Barry to attend Adult Day Care for a month. This could take us to February, and by then he might be granted medical assistance.
On Christmas Day, I opened an envelope that was delivered to one of my publishers. It was an anonymous gift of money. With this, Barry can attend a third day each week for a month. Or it could help with a move into assisted living when I decide he needs it.
I am profoundly thankful and humbled by all your kindnesses! I hope someday I can pay it forward to someone else who needs help.
