Paul

Paul went through quadrupedal bypass open heart surgery at the Veterans Hospital. They then placed him in a nursing home, and when his time was up there, Paul was lucky enough to find a homeless shelter with respite care.

Paul was very lucky in many ways. Here in Los Angeles I only know of two facilities that offer respite care both totaling only 85 beds combined.

We have a ‘Silver Tsunami’ coming that is very serious. The ‘boomers’ are hitting the senior years and because of the economy savings and health care are nonexistent. In a few years, older Americans will be taxing the social services system and we need to be building more respite care facilities now.
