My very old mother and several of her very old friends still live in their own homes but they don’t drive any more. They could keep in touch by phone, but they don’t for some reason. Maybe they don’t have old-fashioned land lines and don’t know how to use modern cell phones.
Queenie, how can I help my mother?—Concerned daughter
You can help your mother and her friends by making sure they have contact with and transportation to a senior citizens centre and/or a senior citizens help organisation. And be sure she has regular medical check-ups (and her friends too).
