Job-share drinkers for elderly man

Job-share drinkers for elderly man : “‘I want to give him some of his old life back.'”

Being connected, belonging, doing the things you like and bring you a sense of your own self are important. This son has quite an interesting plan which will help keep his elderly father connected to life and living for as long as is possible. The son has gone about it in a logical, methodical fashion and his choices of companions for his father’s outings are good. It is a different approach but one which may well lead to a practice which will help keep the elderly and frail safe but as part of our community. Their experience and knowledge is not to be underestimated and their wellbeing is important too.
