Jack is a 90-year-old man who loves Saint Patrick's Day, baseball, and talking with his many friends. He is also a man betrayed by a longtime caretaker. Jack lost his home and life savings, but not his will to live independently. Village Adult Services (VAS) stepped up its commitment to help Jack at the most vulnerable time of his life.
