    A thoughtful article Dick. I would only add yet another sad situation that has existed for decades: Elderly couples (and singles) who established a home in urban areas many years ago only to find themselves more or less trapped in a much deteriorated neighborhood (often crime ridden) where services we take for granted no longer exist. Among these are a near total absence of supermarkets, now found mostly in suburban malls; a dearth of doctors’ offices, clinics or urgent care facilities, as well as major medical centers that have opted for new construction outside of the city. Even urban bus service has often been re-routed out of the same areas leaving these elderly virtually isolated unless they can afford the regular cost of transportation by way of taxi. Consequently, they are forced to purchase their groceries in extremely expensive neighborhood “convenience” food stores offering much inferior choices in nutritional foods including a near total lack of fresh greens and other vegetables. Thus, one might argue that families enjoying much higher incomes who live out in those same suburbs are paying much less for their own food and eating a hell-of-a-lot better. We are among those better off families but even here in the burbs our elderly are provided with para-transit
