Coming Health Care Changes

June 26, 2017

Big health companies are replacing Dane County health long-term care system in a year.  Currently in Dane County ninety-three percent of the disabled are employed which is the highest percentage in the county.  This could all change when the big companies take over.  Most people with disabilities don’t know this, but I have been attending disabled meetings about this sad reality.  I think about my artistic roommate, who does laundry at a hotel four days a week for three hours a day.  He looks forward to going to going a work each day.  He gets paid and brightens the hotel with his smile.  His employer does small things for him like giving him a rose for Valentine’s Day.  The cognitively disabled need jobs or they will sit at home, watching TV.  It won’t affect me.  I have a career.  I’m the author with two publishers and an agent.
