My 42 year old neighbor who never married and has no children, had a stroke a couple months ago. As her mother was getting her house ready to come home to, her mother had a heart attack and is in the hosptial. My neighbor's brother, who has a heart condition and is partially blind is taking care of her since she came home Thursday. Another female neighbor and I offered to give her baths so to give dignity to the situation. She was crying in the shower saying tonight how she has no one but her brother.
I am reminded that this could be me now that I'm divorced. I will be there for her as much as I can. We are planning showers for every other day unless she needs one sooner.
I've also been taking her brother shopping since he can't drive.
I wish I could do more. I work 40 hours a week and have two boys.
