My sisters keeper
Organized by: Kelly Kortz
I have never in my life asked for help. This is not for me. My oldest sister has debilitating MS, diagnosed at 36, she is now 43 and unable to live on her own. Last November she had a servere heart attach and her kidneys quit. After 6 weeks in the hospital her only option given was a nursing home. I could not allow this as I am her sister and a nurse. I moved her into my house and I have caregivers coming 4hrs a day to help me, but we have a huge dilema as my sister body quits, I am unable to get her up the stairs into a shower. I use a levy system with a snow sled to get her up and down the stairs and this is not always safe. I am asking for my sister and my 2 young boys for assistance to get my basement more handicap accessible and help my sister maintain any independence and dignity she can putting a bathroom in her living area.
