Having reached the stage of "senior" with no family and a partner who is disabled I often wonder who will care for me when I need help. I will probably be managed by a patient advocate which might be a good thing rather than being a burden on children or my sibling.  I would prefer having a more personal tie but having seen many wonderful caregivers caring for seniors here in Florida I am hopeful that I will also have someone kind and compassionate caring for me.


I am sure that most everyone who is alone has these same thoughts and cares.  I am glad that you have some thoughts and plans!
