I've got a disabled sister, an elderly dad who needs care round the clock, and a strict job with little free time. There is a neighbor who grew up in a group home setting and now lives alone close to me. She isn't the most pleasant person to be around, has part time staff to help her, but needs friendship. I simply can't be the one to give her my cell number to comfort her when she gets lonely. How can we help someone like that? She is a little selfish and difficult but so needy and shouldn't be abandoned to solitude. (yes, she has pets, a nice place, and lives ok, just lonely and she's sort of a pariah around here cause she's so needy.) She has balance issues and doesn't walk well, lost use of one arm, and is a cancer survivor, in her 40s I think.
