I'm writing concerning the article on senior housing. What we need is affordable housing.

When I was seeking memory care for my husband, the cost was higher than we even made. There was a waiting list at Guardian Angel Homes. He would have been number 16. Then when I thought I might be able to pull it off with help from the veterans, they raised the price. The other homes were too high also. One wanted $1,300 a month for his level of care. If you do not want to go on Medicaid, assisted living at these prices are not possible for most seniors.

My husband passed at home, a labor of love for me but really hard. Affordable housing please!
