Caring community comes to rescue after elderly woman falls


On Friday, Nov. 22, my elderly mom had a bad fall outside the Envision Credit Union at the Town Centre Mall. My sincerest thanks to the gentleman who witnessed it, who rushed to tend and comfort my mom and stayed with us until the ambulance arrived.

Thanks also to the nurse who talked and consoled her and to the many incredible, thoughtful people who covered her with blankets and jackets (one yellow and black patterned blanket that went to the hospital has been washed and turned in at mall administration).

What a great, caring community. Thank you all.
