Hi - I am brand new to this site. Was diagnosed with bronchiectasis two months ago but have had debilitating illnesses long before that, which I was managing - with difficulty. However, this latest' hammer blow' has meant that I no longer feel safe living alone and as I am only 58 - do not qualify for moving into most retirement homes. I really don't feel mentally old enough for to move into a retirement complex either, however I don't feel safe living alone (especially at night) in case I need help with my disabilities. I don't have any family that could help either. Has anyone any advice?
