Caring for Family

Angela came into St. Francis House to seek help with a water bill. She lives with her mother, Mabel, a 91-year-old retired nurse. Mabel suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease and requires round the clock supervision. Since Medicare doesn’t cover long-term care and her benefits are not enough for an assisted living facility,  Angela had no choice but leave her job and become a full-time caregiver. Even so, sometimes, there is not enough money to cover rent, insurance, and medicine as well as bills.  Thanks to you, St. Francis House was able to help.
