They put the camera in the house of this old woman. That this recorder broke my heart.

This is Mary Toney, a 98-year-old American who lives alone in a small house, desperately trying to spend time. Even though the weather outside is beautiful, she gets stuck in her house.

Every day the bus stops in front of her house, and Maria is sent to the local adult center by a friendly woman. For a couple of hours, Mary forgets about her depressing life. Now, the visit is slightly different, since there is a camera command in place. Mary is very excited and laughs in embarrassment. People in the center are trying to do everything that she had a good time. An employee from the senior center says: “I hope that if they return home, and the next day they will not come, because they are no more, that their last day was full of joy.” The cameras asked her why She considered the work important, she said that this is because these people still live and do not differ from when they were younger.

When Mary leaves home, she is very sad, because she is lonely in her house. The camera team wanted to know what she was doing when she got home. That’s what she said: “What should I do? Where should I go? I am alone. I can not see. I can not hear. I can not live with my nieces, they have their own families. I can hardly wait until morning to go again. I really like it there. But on Saturday and Sunday, there is no one. I take promotional brochures and tear the pages into strips. I cut the strips into small pieces and threw them into a bag, and then into the garbage, I have to do something, otherwise I’ll go mad. ”

The staff of the center wonder how the elderly live and what they do when they are alone. Mary’s loneliness is not an excuse for drowning in self-pity, she says: “How many 98-year-olds can still walk on their own? I can. And I want as long as I can. “After the team left, she said that she loves them for coming, because it was her day. She will not forget them. Attention. Hugs and kisses for Maria are more than anything in the world. Now she realizes that she is not alone, and that there are people who love and care about her. Its bittersweet story should be shared with everyone, since no one should be forgotten just because they are old.
