Almost every day Teresa passes through the door of the senior center to check that the paper is still at the door. In it it says, in short, “Closed due to COVID”. It has been like this since the pandemic began. Now Teresa, 77, is accompanied by a maid at home in the morning. The afternoons, alone, are spent reading. But before his life was not like that.
