Occupation Retired mental health counsellor, now artist
Location Chapala, Mexico
Introduction Until May 10 of this year (2017) I was living happily in Langley Washington and my husband, Robert, was living in assisted living in Oak Harbor because he has Lewy Body Dementia. His condition was worsening and he was soon in need of care beyond assisted living. I didn't know how we would afford the escalating costs for care until a friend mentioned to me that there are excellent long term care facilities in Ajijic Mexico at affordable costs. I made a couple of trips to Ajijic and researched facilities and liked what I found. In two months I made all the necessary arrangements, both in Ajijic and in Langley. Robert now lives in La Casa Nostra, and I live in a beautiful house in Chapala. This blog is about our journey with Robert's disease, moving to Mexico, and hopefully refinding myself as an artist.
