This Week's Carenote

I will be sixty five in October. I need help with housework and some one to do the yard. I have Lupus and a head injury caused by being hit by a truck. I also have a fear of falling. I am married, but my husband now works two jobs. I used to be an educator. Does social security do these things for people that need the basics? Please help me and my husband, who tries so hard. We are still in love after 47 years.

Dear Tula, Check with the Office of Aging and the County Assistance Office in your county for available services. My community offers home-based care giver services for folks in similar circumstances. If you are unable to access aging services, contact your state representative for additional information on available resources.
