Many families are familiar with the wrenching decisions that have to be made when a parent can no longer live alone.

This week, KUMD takes a look at who is experiencing homelessness in the Northland. Who are they? Why don't they have homes? What are their options?

In this installment of our "Finding Home" series, Marjorie Bottila of Senior LinkAge Line® explains the help this "one stop shop" can provide for seniors, but as is the case when anyone is homeless, connecting with services is more of a challenge and people still have the right to refuse help.
