A good meal can be hard to come by!

When Maureen is tending to her own and her husband’s needs, preparing a creative, complete meal is often not possible. One pleasure they still are able enjoy is a good restaurant meal, either in their favorite spots or take out at home. COVID-19 put an immediate end to their normal dining routine. The Pandemic created stress and disorientation for many at risk older adults.

He is an independent retirement living community resident, but remains socially withdrawn and isolated. Mike has a Guardian to manage his affairs, but no family involvement.
