Jigsaw puzzles keep your mind active and alert
Doing jigsaw puzzles passes the time away in the most wonderful way. I usually complete one a week.
They have thousands of pieces, so my Home Care support workers always have to look out for stray pieces around the house!
Share your passions with others
I love to see the joy on people’s faces when they see my work. Lots of friends want to buy the puzzles to put in their homes so I have developed a special technique to flip them onto hardboard so they can be framed.
Look after yourself and do the things you enjoy
I am determined to remain living at home for as long as possible. I go shopping, prepare my own meals and visit friends and family. I go on cruises and also love drives in the countryside.
Life is good
I am the luckiest man alive. I have my health, my family, I’m happy and love the help I receive from the Home Care Experts. I’ve lived a hard working and healthy life and sure I’m being rewarded for it.
