Alan Venable

Thanks for this informative column. The fact about lack of transportation near senior residences is surprising and important. Living well inside San Francisco, I wasn't aware of it.

Thanks Alan. I was surprised to hear "bus stop" as a prime need, but of course it makes perfect sense.

Katz, "activated patient" is a healthcare buzzword for patients who take responsibility for their own health and healthcare vis-a-vis patients who want the doctor to be the authority and the magic pill bullet to be the solution.

Susan, thanks for the explanation. Isn't that weird that they would use a passive term (ie the patients have been activated) when they mean, the patients activate themselves. Anyway, how lovely to hear from you. Hope you are both very well.
