Cook meals,
cut firewood
snow removal
garden tilling
camping (Bought a special ADA friendly RV with 4 seats for sole purpose to take elderly that like to camp, but lost their driving privileges.)
home stays during recovery
hospice... (the end)
Estate sales

It is good to have nice neighbors, and we have the best. Tho none are younger than us.. so not sure who will be doing the above for me. Hopefully no one will need to!

Thanks, but I like having my neighbor pick up my mail. She has a key to the house, brings it in, checks the cats' food and water and makes sure pipes aren't freezing, etc.

We've lived next door so long that we are like family which feels a lot better than having strangers take care of things.

The adult kids have keys, too, but they are so crazy "busy."

Wonder who will watch after them. . .

We don't like the post people to know we aren't home.
So we have the neighbor pick it up
