This story brings sadness to my heart, knowing many live this way. It is, however, a necessary story to bring to the attention of someone who may be on the verge of entering those twilight years, allowing them to prevent some of the pitfalls this person went through. Second quote marks are always after punctuation. Be sure to always proof and re-proof any entry in order to avoid forgetting a word here or there. Also, the word "new" in the latter part of this story should be "knew." Your spell checker wouldn't pick up on that. I think your story had a very important message, one that you presented very well.
