Poker, Coffee and Memories

Irene Chalk (right) tells Mary White the story of her Polish wedding in Chicago. The two neighbors share poker, coffee, and memories during their morning visits. They met through the county’s caregiver respite program. “I started out as a volunteer, but now we are good friends,” said Mary.

Mary’s visit allows Irene’s husband, Joseph, the opportunity to spend a few hours working out at the South Run Rec Center knowing Irene is in good hands.
