This reporter was really hoping that her family could qualify for the Affordable Care Act insurance under the "unaffordable" rule. But after researching it, she's convinced her family isn't eligible. What's your story?

Planning for the inevitable

First, I want to thank everyone who emailed, called or mentioned to me in person their condolences over my mother's death, and that they were glad that I wrote my experiences in An Apple A Day. When I started this healthcare blog, I really anticipated having many months to explore the issues surrounding long-term care, quality of care for the aging, and living with dementia from first-hand experiences. I had no idea that I would be writing about end-of-life decisions so soon.
