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

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


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.

My heart goes out to you, as well as my admiration, Sid. I don't have any suggestions for your housing search, but I do wish you the best  in the next phase of your great adventure.

Sid I'm sorry these unfortunate circumstances have befallen your wife and you.  I wish there was something I could say or do that would help.  But, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope that things will work out for you as much as possible.

Re Virginia, I haven't been in VA since 1968, so I can't help you there either.  Wish I could.

Sorry for these rotten circumstances life threw at you both and hope that your new life will be comfortable for both of you. It sounds like your wife will be getting the care she needs, plus the closeness of your daughter will help the transition.

Much love and peace for the future.
