Memories – 40 years – Plight of old people in the city

Elderly

IN the churches around Limerick during winter you will see old persons huddled up against radiators because they have no place else to do, according to Dr EJ Little, who spoke at the recent health meeting. 

Miss Joan Stack, superintendent, public health nurse, urged the board to consider these people as well as battered parents.  

Miss Stack raised the question of the centre when the meeting was considering renting the residential section of the dispensary as a care unit, for a nominal rent, to the Limerick branch of Adapt.
