About

It's a story of true love, super seniors separated by blindness, nursing home placement and transportation needs. This super senior couple are living apart for the first time in their lives and while they talk on the phone every day, they only get to see each other once per week when their whole family gets together at the nursing home.

Could you spend 4 hours one or two days per month to pick this lady up and take her to visit her husband? While she is there you can go to the nearby shopping center and get your groceries or try any number of local retail outlets, curio shoppes and specialty stores or restaurants. It's easy to do and you can be part of something truly romantic!
