Puerto Rico's Elderly And Infirm Suffering Most

The elderly and the infirm in Puerto Rico have suffered more from the devastation of Hurricane Maria perhaps than anyone other group of people. The old and those in need of care have seen their problems multiply since Maria shattered basic infrastructure across the U.S. island. They are isolated from their families due to phone blackouts, short of fuel and water and at the mercy of nationwide power cuts. Because rationing of resources has forced hundreds and thousands of people to adjust to days whose effective span falls well short of 24 hours, elevators, dialysis machines and a host of life-saving medical devices no longer offer the same guarantees.
