“We visited Trish. She has been bedridden for more than 8 months. Her family is in Connecticut and New York. We haven’t seen her since the Covid lock down and could not communicate because she only had a pay as you go phone to talk to her family. She is bright and beautiful and wanted a ipad. “
“Joe is here in Florida but his family is in Texas. He told us he used to love to read but his job kept him to busy. Now he cannot see well enough. We told him we could put an app on his phone but he only has a flip phone. There are audible books and services for the visually impaired but he cannot access them with a family in Texas and no library services in place.”
“When we visit the Veteran’s Home we bring a talented singer. After a performance of patriotic songs and favorites the Veteran’s get up (if they are able to) and give her a standing ovation. During our visits we listen to how many Veteran’s sang in choirs and other groups all of their lives”
