Turley is dependent on insulin for her diabetes, and suffers from chronic pain syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and has a history of falls. “Morgan bathes me, clothes me, helps me get up and move around. I depend on her being here,” she added.

Turley receives services under a Medicaid waiver program for Floridians who would otherwise require institutional placement, which would come with a much a higher price tag than a few hours a week of home care services.
