    I know several people in the US and the UK who struggle with this and would definitely be classed as poor. It seems that while the facilities may be available, people who need them are not always in a position to locate or take advantage or them. In cases like the mentally ill, someone paranoid may be too terrified to approach a food bank, church, or veterans' facility giving help and others due to their conditions may be unable to access support.

    There's a reason care in the community over here was dubbed "care in a cardboard box". It turns out that people who can't manage day-to-day life without assistive care, don't do very well when they are expected to, and failing to keep appointments for medication and similar just makes their problems worse.
