'Senior Portraits': Juanita


We're continuing our series of conversations with seniors who live in assisted living facilities and nursing homes in Maryland. Today we hear from a woman who likes to keep her sketchpad close and her playing cards even closer.

Juanita will turn 70 on Wednesday. She's a resident of HCR Manor Care in Adelphi, Maryland. 

Producer Jamyla Kay went to the facility in Prince George's County and brings us Juanita's story.
