Maureen Connors Badding arrived in Wauwatosa 22 years ago via Buffalo and Phoenix. She's a freelance writer and habitual volunteer who enjoys book clubs, travel, entertaining and cheering for her daughter's swim team.
I was one of a few dozen people to receive a timely e-mail from Diane Euting, director of Tosa Interfaith Program for Older Adults, the other day:
"At worst, for most of us, snow is a nuisance. For many of our elderly neighbors, it can be a deal breaker. Can they remain living in the home that they have spent years in or will they need to think about moving to an apartment or assisted living facility? If they can’t shovel it themselves, they worry that it may be time for them to leave a home that usually is full of wonderful memories."
