Looking for suggestions for my community to improve life for seniors.

Our municipality received a grant to develop programs and services to aid seniors. The town already has a bus that can take seniors shopping and such. There is a snow shoveling service provided by Seton Hall University students. There are free tickets to some events at the performing art center.

Does your community offer creative services for seniors that might be incorporated into our town program?

Time to say goodbye to my mother.

She is 97 and has spent the last 9 years I dementia care. She is in no pain or stress but her body is failing to the point that I am to go Monday to sign hospice papers - no further treatment that would aim towards curing anything.

Logically, it it right but it feels like I am signing her death warrant. It hurts.

There is relief that I will be able to sell her rental property which has been one big headache. That is the only good thing about this. Beyond it, I feel shitty.
