Families Struggling to FInd Care for Adults with Disabilities
Since 43-year-old Ivana Schnars moved into a nursing home in Pflugerville, her mom Sue Schnars has tried to make it as comfortable as the home where her daughter spent most of her life. Citrus essential oil perfumes the dorm-like room. Relatives have left sweet messages on a white board. Pink decorations dot the walls. Unable to care for Ivana Schnars, who is nonverbal and uses a wheelchair, on her own, Sue Schnars moved her out of their North Austin home in August.
