    Thank you so much for this post. I am the meals on wheels and senior center director for LifeSpan Resources, the Area Agency on Aging for the southern Indiana counties of Clark, Floyd, Harrison and Floyd. This time of the year is incredibly hard on our clients. So much wrenching need right here in our own community. Here are a couple of additional helpful resources:

    Thanks again for reminding people not to forget about the elderly in their families and communities.
