Give me some other ways that I can butt in line. I DON'T FEEL LIKE WAITING MY TURN; THIS IS RIDICULOUS!

I hope if I have to go off to a rehab facility that I can bring my cat with me; I don't like to leave him at home by himself. He wasn't a happy camper today about being nudged off my tummy when I was surfing the web; he went in the bedroom and sulked; I had to apologize to him, and he liked that. He let me rub him behind the ears like he normally does, and he gives me that contented look on his sweet face

CAK, next fall and hospitalization tell the social worker of the unit that you are not able to care for yourself and a open slot in assisted will be found for you. Request rehab to try to regain strength so you may feel better about returning home. There are ways to butt in line, but they will only happen if justified by medical staff.

I have been accepted at a couple of senior living complexes in another state. The thing that drives me crazy is there's a waiting list, and I have had some falls which resulted in debilitating injuries. I DON'T FEEL LIKE WAITING MY TURN! I just want to butt in line. I am also considering going to a senior center on alternating Tuesdays of each month, but it won't be in the city I live in; I will go to where I used to live. The city where I currently live, I don't like it, and I wish it would get erased off the map

Cak I am sorry I am not really good with this stuff is Social Services the same as Social Security forgive my ignorance but they have so many agencies and the names all sound alike after a while and I don't want to waste time tracking down the wrong one. Or is Social Services the old Welfare department with a new name. Mamawatkins73

Mamawatkins, I do business with Social Services quite a bit, they have been helpful in my adjustment to apartment life, and from time to time, you can get a really neat cell phone. I got one this past Friday; it takes pictures, and it is so neat. I get the web on it too; it is a slider phone which I think is really cool. Again, pay Social Services a visit; nine times out of ten those people don't bite. You may not see eye to eye with them, but I have not had any problems with them

Mamawatkins, go to Social Services, they could give you a lot of advice on how to get a good senior housing apartment. I just turned 62 this year so I have been sending out applications all over the place; I have been accepted at a couple of complexes in upstate Pennsylvania where my sister lives. Also, do some research over the web, you're bound to find something in your area. I use public transportation after having to give up driving due to a serious fall some five years ago which resulted in a debilitating injury, and I have never been quite the same. I had to give up driving; I don't mind using mass transit, and there's a girl I used to work with who comes and takes me to the supermarket so that gives me something to look forward to. I can ride a bike, and I would like to drive again.

Call either 211 or 311. You can get Adult Protective Services, all senior programs in your area. Do a search for those 2 numbers to call the right one. Sorry, I can't remember which number.
