Elderly Gays Separated by Social Services

It's a horrifying story, and one that bears repeating.

Selling the possessions, however, is not unknown, even for married couples. Andrew and I know an elderly woman who had to divorce her husband after he suffered a stroke, in order to keep the Powers That Be from seizing their house and putting her out on the street, to cover his medical care. Basically, he was beyond help, but hadn't died yet, in a similar situation to this gay couple. Think the government has compassion? Think again.
