Disability: It can happen in an instant!
(tomball texas usa)
My husband and I actually did not prepare for the time when we would be unable to work a regular job.
My husband Don had a stroke at a rather young age. He was able to improve and work only some. This greatly impacted our finances. after about six years he was hit with a major critical stroke which almost took his life.
That changed both our lives. He lived in a nursing home until 18 months after the stroke. We had lost every thing. I did not work since I cared for him every day just like a job.
After he was discharged we lived with family while I was on full time care giver duty. After 5 years I was able to get us into an apartment for the disabled on low income.
We have been on this journey for over 16 years now. Does anyone have a similar situation as this ?
