Deciding the best situation for an elderly parent is never an easy thing, but when they live alone in a city with no family, it gets even tougher.
One Valley charity, Duet, services seniors who can no longer drive by helping them run errands, effectively allowing them to stay in their home as long as possible.
“One particular person that comes to mind…can’t get to the store, so we have found a volunteer who takes her to the store once per week,” Duet Dir. of Volunteer Services Sue Reckinger told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR’s Mac & Gaydos on Wednesday.
Reckinger also said volunteers also spend time visiting with seniors to combat the loneliness that comes with living on their own.
