My sisters and I are looking for ideas on what to do or get for dad for Father's Day.
We'll be bringing him to the cottage (one of his favourite places!) for the weekend so we know he'll enjoy that Being able to spend time with him is such a precious gift (for us!!!) and we want to get him something he can truly enjoy.
He's at the stage where he can't talk (except for a couple of barely understandable, whispered words every so often), he's either sleeping or in a reclining chair much of the day. Just walking (with assistance) to/from the bathroom exhausts him and eating (swallowing) is an increasing challenge.
Any thoughts on a Wii?
He's in front of a television most of the time and my mother is reluctant to bring him anywhere as it's a lot of work to get him to/from, etc.
Dad has always enjoyed electronics but since his sight has deteriorated, he's not able to use a keyboard or computer. I'm hoping he might be able to get at least some sort of physical and mental stimulation (golf, bowling, tennis, boxing, etc.), not to mention have a bit of fun!
Also hoping Wii might have some sort of game(?) that might allow him to communicate by pointing at letters/spelling words.
Open to suggestions...
