A story from our Area IV Agency on Aging SHIP Counselor, Saundra Lowry.
In September, a woman named Jane* came to visit with me about some possible help with car repairs. In talking with her I discovered that she and her husband had moved in with his ill father to care for him. He died at the beginning of that year and the home was being sold. They needed to find a place to live so they moved into an apartment that March while being on the waiting list for Section 8 rental assistance.
