social life when friends can pick her up, and enjoys once a month visits with her oldest daughter, who is 
a custodian at an elementary school. Ms. Jenkins reports to taking beta-blockers for her hypertension 
and glaucoma, seeing the ophthalmologist once a year, and is also on diuretics (water pills, she called
