An 85-year young widow neighbor, who lives independently, resumed her daily walks after a recent hip replacement surgery but expressed fear about being too far from home "What if I fall or something?"
Three of us on the block are taking turns (Mon-Wed-Fri) to go with her on on her slow trips around the block. (I've also been able to drive her to a few medical appointments).
She's a wealth of interesting information and I've learnt a great deal from her. What a blessing, what a great opportunity to learn and stay in touch with neighbors.
