My grandfather led a remarkably independent life, living in downtown Boston and traveling the world well after he lost his ability to walk. When his medical needs finally increased beyond his own abilities, we had to pack up his apartment and move him to a nursing home. No one on the medical side seemed to take charge, to the point where mismanaged diabetic care led to the loss of his leg. The burden of care fell ultimately on my mother, who heroically managed an ever rotating nursing staff, unexpected hospital admissions, and the challenges of Medicare and Medicaid. I continually look to her example as my own family grows, and my parents age.
