THE CHALLENGE OF ACCESSING SERVICES WHERE YOU LIVETom wants to stay in his community.
Tom Marshall grew up in small town Ontario. He worked the land left to him by his father. And like his father, he made a living farming fruits and vegetables, building a life in this community of less than 10,000. This is where he met his wife, where his kids went to school, where his son married and began working the farm with him and where his daughter began practicing law. In many ways, Tom’s life, connected as it is to his community, followed that of his father. Except that his father didn’t live past 75. Tom is 85. His son has taken over the farm entirely. Tom’s health began to suffer after his wife passed away. He became increasingly less capable and more dependent on his adult children. He needed support with things like dressing in the morning, bathing and toileting. He could no longer care for himself and that frustrated him, which caused him to become easily agitated.
