How much attention is actually paid to elderly people? Perhaps those who are doing nicely in their twilight years are held up as good examples; those who are barely making it, or not making it--living in nursing homes, with their children, or homeless are getting some bit of notice, but those who are still on their own but not seen or heard from unless they are found dead by the postman or a chance visit by a neighbor--the man or woman who rarely is seen or heard from--who knows of them? They are not the grandparents on the Hallmark cards, my friend.
