When Adult Children—Primarily Daughters—Serve as “Long-Term Care Insurance”
Nicole Dieker

I cared for my grandparents while grandma was dying of brain cancer and both were wheelchair dependent. I don’t need a card for goddamned “Child Day.” My birthday still happened, ya know? I needed the same thing she needed — a less complicated, more comprehensive system of insurance and elder care that made quality, dignified, skilled care affordable and accessible. We needed the world to be TRULY wheelchair accessible. We needed people to be patient and calm.

Child’s Day? FFS.
