Alzheimer care demands outweigh Langley Township fines

Dear Editor,

My husband has a camper parked on our driveway.

My husband also has Alzheimer’s Disease. I am his caregiver, wife, and handler of everything.

I can not drive the camper. I have been thrown into the driver’s seat because of his Alzheimer’s and am not comfortable driving. This camper has been parked there for more than five years. Same place. I was led to understand that the bylaw would not be enforced unless a close neighbour complained.

I do not know when the bylaw was enacted, but is it not possible his camper is grandfathered in?

I have a lot of responsibilities to deal with that are immediate and very important. My husband cannot be left alone.

I have four hours a week to do the grocery shopping, banking, and all the other running around entailed with handling a household. During those four hours I am supposed to refresh myself, so I can continue to take care of him.

The camper is staying where it is until I have a plan of how to get it moved. Fine him if you must, but that just adds to my responsibilities.

Lorraine Hubbs, Aldergrove
