My brother with leukemia....
« on: February 18, 2020, 02:35:51 AM »
Sorry to hog all the real estate here, but I may as well move "my brother with leukemia" from the thread "Christmas/Vacation plans?"

I had said

My brother is moving into a retirement home.  It won't be expensive, as he only requires minimal care.  (meals only?)

I saw him today, and it really hit home how helpless he is.......

Hello Peter. No need to make changes unless you have the energy to do it. Having lost a brother I can have sympathy for you. Hopefully your brother will not go downhill too fast. Take Care. paul m

 No need to move it. Hoping your brother is doing ok. It is never easy to watch a family member with a serious thing like cancer. Hope he is getting all the help he needs. Send him my best thoughts

Mom, thanks for your thoughts.  He moved into a FANCY retirement home in Thorncliffe Park the other day.

My youngest brother also found an apt in East York recently. (he was living in younger brother's basement)

I had hoped he would move into some kind of seniors housing - cheaper or subsidized rent, and importantly, social contact.
He has social phobia, like a lot of family members.

I'm in a seniors building - there's always someone to talk to on the first floor - meeting rooms, reception....and we have activities, exercise classes.  (some, not a lot)
