Long time caregiver will be homeless

My name is Ken Adams. I been trying to create a GoFundMe page on and off for over a year and a half. I always get hit with pride and the lack of how to tell a long life story of being a caregiver for my parents.

I have been a caregiver for my mom, dad and grandmother for over 25 years. I am an only child with no family left.  Due to devastating circumstances of the passing of my mom this past Christmas week (12/27/18), I am now in jeopardy of losing my house due to a reverse mortgage and medical debt.

All my savings went to health care and medical bills for my parents. In 2001, I had to give 24/7 care for my ill father who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in the early 1990s until his passing in 2014. A few years before his death,  my mother became ill.  She suffered from dementia but she was fortunately coherent and aware of her surroundings.

Caring for my mother took a toll on myself, being sleep deprived, but thankfully for the few hours each week, home nursing helped me.

Three years ago I was blessed with a loving cat who stayed by my side. I feel that he knew I needed a companion and help during these hard times. Some may say he is just a cat, but this one has God in him and I want the best care for him as he has done for my mom and I.

They say God will put the right people in your path when you admit you need help the most. I'm a religious man, but often questioned why my grandmother, father and mothers suffering was so seviere for decades rather than just a few years? I feel I can give some reason for it if I'm given the opportunity to help others in situation.

Words cannot express the appreciation I have for the good people out there, whether they can help or just send positive prayers and energy. I’m very optimistic that moving forward with help, I can help others. I want to take all of my experiences as a caregiver and help people who are in similar situations. Thank you and God Bless.
