Help a senior male remain connected and engaged by checking in once a week with a phone call or visit! Spend time conversing and sharing time together. Providing undivided attention to a senior can boost their spirit and help them to overcome obstacles that may otherwise lead them into a senior home. Spend a little time with a homebound elder and you will make a big difference!
