The Onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a surge in the use of digital health care, including among older adults.

Here among the deep rolling hills is the one-time ranch of Will Rogers, a 1920s and ’30s Old West star who could make rope spin and dance in his hands. The park still houses a riding ring, stables, corrals, and wide swaths of rugged country—and it’s the type of cowboy landscape that feels like home to Gilford.
