I am 75, surviving deadly diagnosis for the 14h year now. my mobility and need for Oxygen therapy only diminished in the last 3-4 years. I am probably the exception to what happens to most elderly who live alone. I would not have it any other way. I entertain myself, I read, I am an activist (for Bernie Sanders), I am on FaceBook and Twitter. Poetry is my favorite, but I also play music. There are not enough hours in the day for me to either be bored, or lonely, or isolated. But then it comes in handy that I speak many languages and communicate with friends and family all over the world. It comes in handy that I am a physics teacher and know about leverage, electronics and computer-savvy. Now that I look at what I wrote, I can confidently say to you, that it matters that I am well educated and have a lot of skills. This is what I would add to your write-up: Do not forget the role education plays even in this sorry setting.
