Forced Nursing Home Evictions Must Stop. AARP Foundation Is Helping Protect the Most Vulnerable. Learn How

I take care of my husband who had a stroke and now has aphasia and loss of the use of his right arm and leg. Therapy sessions are costly and insurance has a cap, which we hit by about mid year.  I live near 3 Universities and have found a speech pathology Master's program and a Dr of Physical therapy program needing individuals who their students can work with as part of their studies. My husband loves all the attention the students give him (soaks it up) and the students love waiting on him. It's a win:win.  He gets the social interaction and therapy services and a chance to get out of the house all together.

How do you get into those programs? Do you just blind call the nearby universities?
