Subject: Moving to Charlottesville

It has been a while since I have posted on this forum.

Background:  Wife had a stroke in 2015.  I had handicap modifications
made to the house. She and I thought I could look after her.  The stroke
was a small bleed on the brain stem. Her brother and sister had the
same kind of stroke (maybe a genetic thing) and today you would never
know it. Linda and I thought her situation would be similar.  Not so.

Anyway, even with some aides coming in it was not realistic to
continue.  Our daughter is a senior nurse at the U of VA hospital in
Charlottesville VA. That is her home and she found an outstanding care
facility in Charlottesville which we could afford. In May this year my
wife left here never to return  She is getting excellent 24hr care.

Now I am in the process of getting things ready to sell our "sweet spot"
here in Northern New York.

When the Estate sale is done and the place is sold and our "keeper"
stuff is moved to C-Ville I plan to move to a small apartment in
Charlottesville.

Our daughter will be scouting for a suitable seniors complex that would
do.

---------------------

So, my question to any of you is do you live in a seniors apartment
complex in Charlottesville, or know anyone who does or have any info
that would be helpful?

If so, email me, or just post the info here.

We are moving into a new normal. That's life.  But at least I'll be in the
same town as my wife and daughter.

That's about it.

Thanks

Sid

Sid, nice hearing from you. So sorry about the situation with your wife but it sounds like you have been taking the steps necessary to carry on. It won't be your old "normal" but you will be together.
Good luck.

Life goes on, Sid, and it sounds like you've got a handle on it. Hopes and prayers are there for you both.

getting old is not for the feint of heart, and sometimes it's punch in the gut. I applaud your efforts to care for her. This decision probably did not come easy. Take it day by day shipmate and keep looking up.
