*around who; just; mentality;story.... clearly, i should proof read before i hit enter. :)
Its good to know that there are people aroun dwho still realize what it means to be a parent. Most parents these days act jsut the way my parents have, in that they lack the metality it takes to raise a child. The point of me getting my story out there was not to humiliate my mother, or to have people pity me. I want my stroy known so that others like me can be inspired to do great things. I want to be the role model of homeless teenagers everywhere. Thank you to all who care. :)
Its not just a housing issue. Most of these residents don't just need a place to live, they need care and attention. They need MEDICAL attention. All the nursing homes in Lewiston/Auburn are already very full and the nurses and CNAs all have their hands full, caring for enough patients. These residents don't belong in nursing homes. That's the reason assisted living was created in the first place.
How dare you tell this woman to "adopt a senior"? You don't realize the problems these poor people have and for you to solve the solution by simply placing them into other peoples' homes, is rude and degrading to them. They deserve the care that they need. I'd like to see what you would say, had it been one of your family in this situation.
