For most of Dad's own senior years, he volunteered his time to visit and entertain seniors at many area senior housing complexes and nursing homes. Dad was a skilled piano player - specializing in sing-a-long favorites. One of his many incomplete projects included a training booklet for teaching/entertaining the elderly. In September 2010, as part of a larger letter to me - he included his initial draft of a planned booklet to assist others in working with the elderly. Below is that draft.
