My dad comes to visit in 15 days and will stay for three weeks. I have been counting down the days for the past few weeks. When he comes, we eat meals together, accomplish tasks, and just hang out. Sometimes he has some work to do on his computer during the day, but primarily we are spending time together. I love chatting with him and catching up on the latest.
One of the thing we are going to do during this trip is look further for retirement homes for him. He is hopeful to find a community of 55+ residents where he can make new friends, participate in activities, and feel comfortable around people his own age. After seeing now a few of these places, I feel it will be a great fit for him. The people are nice and the amenities are fabulous. I’m hoping we find one that is relatively close to where I live.
In the meantime, I’ve also gotten him a new charging cord for his phone. When he’s out here, we’re often in the car and I don’t want him to run out of battery. He doesn’t use his phone as frequently as I do, but despite that, it’s often that we are caught out and the battery is dying. I’m looking forward to having him move into retirement also with the latest technology at his fingertips.
