How Do You Support An Older Father?

Postby MissCandyGirl on Sun Jan 12, 2020 9:54 pm

I don't mean physically, but emotionally - rather than mentally. I shall make sure to include my dad in daily activities and just help him out with the house, shopping, etc.

But how do I encourage him to go out and socialize more? It must be very lonely for him with no partner in his life. His computer is his world: but it is lonely, too. I have decided to invite him out with my sister and myself more often.

I don't want to see my dad grow old and lonely.
