The Robin's Nest

In an aging Victorian house on High Street in Clinton, Robin Twigg, left, runs an elderly care facility, The Robin's Nest, that services 15 people, five of whom live at the home full-time. Because the facility is not considered a nursing home, the residents have to pay out of their own pockets. This is becoming increasingly difficult and Twigg invited U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, right, to the home Monday to try and get some help from the government.STEPHEN DUNN / HARTFORD COURANT
