Real Life

George J. is an incredible client. He is blind and still lives in his own home at 110 years of age. We thought he was amazing when we featured him in our newsletter at age 103. Now he is the fourth oldest living American. George depends on Meals on Wheels and a 3 day a week housekeeper to help him manage and remain independent. George is a World War I Veteran, who listens to the radio every day to keep up on news and sports. He follows the war news carefully and relates to the plight of a soldier in wartime.
