Re: Disabled and need assistance with yard work
You got to be kidding? LOL They don't even let you have Medicare on SSDI for 2 years. It saves the government between 2-6 billion dollars a year. Maybe they are hoping some of us will die off in that time frame thus bigger savings. 700 billion to Wall St and the poor big 3 only got 17 billion, half what they were asking. So no.
I would look into church groups, community outreach, relatives, friends. I sold my house and went into an apartment. You might want to sell and go into an apartment or a cheap condo. That is what I am looking into now, actually a landominium, where I would I have a small fenced yard. I would only be responsible for what is inside the fence. I mean small it is roughly 32 x15 and mostly stone patio, perfect for my pug. It's a buyer's dream but a seller's nightmare though now. I got a handyman/friend who basically works for beer money. He also feels sorry for me besides I'n cute and cook him stuff LOL(Lying about the cute part) Another thing about condos is you got to watch the association fees, I don't want to pay for aneminities I won't use like, pools, tennis courts, playgrounds, clubhouses and gyms. I love the one I'm looking at but the fees I'm trying to negotiate. I might look into high rise if I can't work this out. These are just options for yard work, even if I didn't have disabilities I hate yard work. I;m not an outside person plus allergies.
