How can I get more social interaction for my father as his health condition worsens?
My father is on oxygen and had been able to go just about anywhere, but he now has a swallowing problem which cuts down on his going out to eat and going to people's homes to eat. I'm looking for a way for him to be around people his own age and have some social interaction. With his increased medical problems, I'm noticing people are starting to pull away from him and I'm concerned about his being too isolated. He used to play cards with some friends, but lately they keep canceling plans and it's been very hard to reschedule with them. He really misses this activity. He needs something to look forward to. His retirees organization goes a lot of places he cannot go due to his oxygen (i.e. bus trips) and they have lots of luncheons and now he is unable to participate in those. Again, he misses these activities.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
