I didn’t even know long-term home health care existed until I retired. I went to the agency SeniorsPlus to learn about Medicare and also learned about all the other wonderful work they do, including keeping people safe in their homes when a nursing home is the alternative. One way they do this is by getting them a nurse to visit. A nurse like me. Six years on, I still love my part-time job, which has become even more important in that time.
