About Me

Back in the 90's, my grandfather ended up in a nursing home. I was the attorney in the family, and had to deal with everything. At that time I had no idea what to do. Numerous questions were unanswered, until I researched the answers. Now I can share my knowledge with you. You'll not be left behind.
