Meet Your Neighbors: Lenore Harrison & Shreya Sanghvi

Lenore (Left): Some people are surprised to find out that I’m a 94 year old who texts and uses an iPad. I’ve never thought of age as a reason to stop growing and learning.  Lately, I’ve been spending more time at home, so a friend suggested I sign up for QCH’s Friendly Visiting Program. It was over a year ago that Shreya started to visit me at home. She is a sweet girl, and I love to talk with her about her life. Her visits give me something to look forward to each week. Recently she brought her boyfriend over so we could meet, and I was touched when she told me I’d have a front row seat at their future wedding. I’m very grateful to have a new companion in my life.


Shreya (Right): I honestly never thought I’d have a 94 year old friend. Then I became a Friendly Visitor and met Lenore. One of our favorite things to do together is watch funny videos on the Internet and laugh. The 72 year age gap is refreshing for both of us because we can learn from each other.  She’s lived such an interesting life.  She tells me the greatest stories about traveling the world with her husband of 50 years. Lenore inspires me. I hope to follow in her footsteps and live a long, happy and adventurous life.
