Gosh ... it has come around again so fast ! where did 2015 go ! My father is in a residential care home and is 90. He has a very poor attention span , sleeps a lot ( even during breakfast at times) but is still 'getting by' with the wonderful support of the carers. he is mobile within the home although a a little unsteady but cannot have a stick as he hits people but manages with support which is readily available. As usual I am now struggling to think what to buy him for Christmas. Clothes wise he has everything he needs and more and toiletries in abundance. He is quite deaf but also finds watching tv a problem ( I think he finds it all a bit overwhelming so avoids it ) . I have bought him an old fashioned ( but new ) radio but have little faith in him being able to use it but took the plunge anyway as it might just work ? I am the eternal optimist. Any other ideas would be greatly received as this is always a difficult thing. Especially when he tells me he is bored but suggest something and he looks at me as if I am quite silly for suggesting it . So if anybody out there has some good suggestions I think it would be brilliant to share thoughts on this difficult issue.
