Back in the old days, fires provided light, heat and an energy source for cooking food. They also could protect humans out in the wild from potential predators. Without fire, life was more difficult. Today, we don’t depend on fire in the same way, but we definitely harness electricity to accomplish many of those same tasks. There’s a reason power outages are called “blackouts”! During the next power outage, check on your fellow Palo Alto seniors…all seniors (including those with dementia care or other memory care needs) are vulnerable.
