It was quite a blow especially coming so soon after the loss of our only child. Life became unbearable. I couldn’t bear the thought that my sweetheart would soon leave me all alone in the world. I disconnected. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep without waking up from nightmares.

I signed up because there was no alternative. I checked myself in together with my husband and have never left since. Even after my sweetheart passed on, the facility remained my true home. The staff are all my friends now. And I can now face each day courageously, knowing that they are here to hold my hand through it all.
