Check in on seniors

Reading the article on the two elderly women found dead: I am a senior who lives alone. We need to be looking out more for the elderly who live alone and checking in to see if they are okay. Some elderly don’t have family members who do this.

One of the examples is if paper carriers see newspapers piling up, they should notify someone. Neighbors should take the time to check in on their elderly neighbors.

Thanks to the neighbor that did take the time to check on the two ladies. It’s too bad the way it turned out. We need to be more active in our community on checking on neighbors in need.
