My wife and I are getting old and we are bedridden most of the day. We need to move. Our home us moldy and needs repairs. It is intolerable here. We should be able to live at least 20 more years if we had the means and the help we need. No one can or is willing to help. We are so sick and will never get well here. We are isolated, scared, depressed, helpless, and lonely. We really need a very large financial miracle to pay for moving us to a senior independent living community where we could get the support services we need to survive. We probably will not last a few months here. Thank You for reading this. Please be prepared for old age and unexpected illnesses because there are very few people who will care if you live or die. May God Bless you all. Amen
