A program at the medical center recruits retirees and specially trains them to help overwhelmed family members cope with a scary hospital stay, for their own health, and so they can better care for their loved one. The coaches offer more than emotional support and a sympathetic ear. (AP Photo/Richard Drew)WASHINGTON (AP) — Edwin Pacheco was in and out of the hospital for months. He'd survived one organ transplant and desperately needed another. But he wasn't the only one suffering.
