Can Connecticut afford to lose more homecare mental health nurses?

A dear friend of mine who grew up in a severely dysfunctional home once said to me, “You never know what goes on in someone’s home.” I think of that often because, as visiting nurses, we do know what goes on. We bear witness to it, into that intimate bubble of a patient’s home and that of their family, a place where we can interject hope, recovery and a better life. Can society afford to lose such a valuable resource?
