By Meredith Goldstein Globe staff Sometimes I hear about a kind of jealousy between people in New York City and Boston. But it has nothing to do with baseball. It’s about a different thing. My single friends in Boston tell me it would be “sooo much easier” to find love if they lived in New York City. Those friends (and some Boston-area readers of my Globe advice column) believe that the dating options would be more plentiful in New York, and that there’d be a better night life scene for meeting strangers. They know for certain there’d be a more diverse dating pool — and perhaps fewer men on apps in TB12 hats. (Not judging the apparel, but that particular look and fandom isn’t for everyone.) Meanwhile, some of my single friends and readers in New York City have wondered whether it might be easier to find a partner in Boston. Those New Yorkers assume that in a smaller city, people might be less transient. Less fickle. They believe that in a … [Read more...] about Which city is better for singles: Boston or New York?
Social activities for senior citizens
DENVER — Pauline Jeffery had let things slide since her husband died. Her bedroom was a mess. Her bathroom was disorganized. She often tripped over rugs in her living and dining room. “I was depressed and doing nothing but feeling sorry for myself,” said the 85-year-old Denver resident. But Jeffery’s inertia faded when she joined a program for frail low-income seniors: Community Aging in Place — Advancing Better Living for Elders (CAPABLE). Over the course of several months last year, an occupational therapist visited Jeffery and discussed issues she wanted to address. A handyman installed a new carpet. A visiting nurse gave her the feeling of being looked after. In short order, Jeffery organized her bedroom, cleaned up her bathroom and began to feel more upbeat. “There’s a lot of people like myself that just need a push and somebody to make them feel like they’re worth something,” she said. “What they did for me, it got me … [Read more...] about Frail Seniors Find Ways To Live Independently

(CNN)Rekha Singh lives with her husband in a New Delhi suburb. Her sons left home for work four years ago, and the couple has been trying to manage their lives as best as they can. In India, facilities like public transport and wheelchair assistance are few and far between, meaning senior citizens are often confined to their homes. Singh is worried about her and her husband's social lives, more than their health. She misses social interaction, entertainment and shopping. It's not common for elderly couples to live by themselves in India, as children continue living with their parents after marriage or getting jobs, forming cohesive units known as joint families. But this has been changing as young adults make their way to cities in search of jobs or go abroad for better opportunities. For parents like the Singhs, that change is difficult to adjust to, but they have set up a routine and pursue hobbies that keep them busy. They spend most of their time in each other's company, but they … [Read more...] about India’s elderly are worried about their social lives
