Homecare a lifesaver for many seniors, but funding is in jeopardy
Charles Harper married his high-school sweetheart, Charlotte, 20 years after graduation. They had rekindled an old romance at a high school reunion. The couple lived in a nice Mamaroneck, N.Y., townhouse and had good jobs. Things changed, though, one day in early 2001 when Charlotte was walking to work. She collapsed when an aneurysm burst in her brain stem, and a blood clot left her paralyzed on the left side.
