“Kathleen, thank you for all your advice. Due to reading news from the Sovereign Society and you, we are now happily ensconced in Panama City. We are in Bella Vista, Marina Park, but are thinking of moving to Vista Marina, next to The Meridien. It is too big for a couple of 80-year-olds, but we love it. And Panama City in general.
“Was amused to read about your family’s barely speaking to you when you moved to Ireland. Our four children think we have lost our minds. They worry that we won’t be allowed to seek an assisted living or nursing home in Texas. We tell them that there are options in P.C.
“Which brings me to my question: Where do we find a maid, a housekeeper, or a nurse?
“Thank you so much for all the spade work.
“We like Italy, too, by the way. But what kind of schooling would Jack get?”

The best way to find the kinds of resources you’re looking for anywhere is word-of-mouth.
We found our first household help in Panama City through an agency and were very disappointed with the result. When we mentioned this to a local friend, she replied, “Ah, well, an agency! That’s not how you find a maid.”
You find a good housekeeper or nurse by asking around. We found our maid, Olga, through a friend of a friend. Olga has been with us for more than three years now and has become like part of the family.
