Just as they call the flu the old man’s friend in that it takes them quickly, urinary track infections is a more common cause of death for elderly women than most realize. Even with meds, their bodies can’t fight it. Cranberry juice is one of the old cures. In addition to just loving anything with cranberries, I planted a patch of cranberry bushes last autumn so as to create my own med supply. You can also buy cranberry supplements in the vitamin section of pharmacies. I have some of that set aside as well as a bunch of cranberry juice. Fresh cranberries freeze well too and I’ve always got a couple pounds set aside that we make cranberry sauce with.
