CAMBRIDGE — He’s an 83-year-old war vet who sleeps on the edge of his bed because he’s fearful someone will come after him.
She’s an elderly woman with dementia; a victim of domestic abuse who is destitute because of her dead husband’s gambling debts.
They are two examples of a growing number of homeless seniors who seek emergency shelter in Cambridge.
Since 2009, the homeless shelter in Cambridge has seen the number of seniors coming to The Bridges double each year. Last year, they housed 98.“It is a real problem,” said Gillian Aiello, volunteer and fundraising manager at the 40-bed emergency shelter.
