Robert lives in his own place, but he is unemployed and struggling financially. He has emphysema and suffers from recurrent chest infections.
While he does have a regular GP, Robert’s biggest barrier to healthcare is his difficulty in keeping appointments and losing prescriptions.
“Why do I drink so much?” Robert responds when asked.
“I was in a car accident and it dulls the pain from my injuries. But most of all, it helps my broken heart from when Pam (his wife) died… of cancer.”
