Thanks to sweet Marianne for asking after me...lots of crime now at the low-income apts. where I live...management refuses to acknowledge it is happening, so we are struggling.
The oldest and most frail tenants are on the lower tier of apartments, and all doors on both tiers are exposed, vulnerable to break-in. LOTS of stolen gas, auto break-ins, even auto theft from our grounds.So several of the strongest tenants patrol now through the night, trying to ward off thieves and scoundrels, us little old ladies (plus a male amputee) with our bright flashlights and loud whistles!
I am exhausted, very stressful too; and still trying to keep up with the volunteer work I do, plus attempting to break through the barriers of management about the crime. Management refuses to spend money for motion-activated lights or cameras or anything else to protect frail and vulnerable precious old people, and again I am horrified that this kind of neglect may be part of a nationwide pattern now.
