Yeah, What About Caregivers?
I share Benjamin J. Dubin’s concern about the unaffordability of home-care services for the majority of our community (“What About Caregivers?,” letters, May 3). The senior population is increasing at a very swift pace. Will our community be ready for this oncoming avalanche of seniors in need of support services? How will we come to the aid of our ever-increasing aging population?
I am a caregiver and very well understand the magnitude of the physical, emotional and financial toll. I have recently sought help from the Northwest Neighbors Connecting organization, which is part of Comprehensive Housing Assistance Inc., an agency of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore. They have made a valiant effort to provide the help we greatly need.
I wish to recognize and sincerely thank this wonderful organization. Specifically, I wish to express our appreciation to Lane Levine and Dan and Rysl Edelman. … May your efforts be blessed.
