“I get lonely out here by myself,” 90-year-old Betty Flowers said.
Her home is nestled into the hills of Anderson County, down several single lane roads. Even though her son lives next door and checks on her every night, Flowers said the days can be long. “If needed, I’d like to have someone out here,” she added.
After accidentally causing a kitchen fire, Flowers’ sons (Jim and Sam) barred her from the kitchen. “I’m not allowed in there anymore,” she said. “They’re scared I’ll fall.”
