I understand Ketchikan Community Connections has a desire to place our adult brother in a Living Assisted Home. When I contacted them on 2-2-2012, I asked if they would benefit from our brother staying at this home. Of course, I really didn't get an answer.
What is wrong with him staying with my Mother? She always made sure he ate and was taken care of. Yes, he does assist my mother as she is aging, but who wouldn't assist their mother?
Our adult brother needs to stay with his family and not by himself in a home that is right above the water, next to a freeway! He likes to walk around and I fear for his safety. The State needs to step up and do what is right, and allow him to stay with his family where he belongs.
