Gordon Carmichael

Gordon’s Story

I am an eighty-eight year old man with a number of health issues. I enjoy the Seniors Daycare Program because it gives me a reason to get up and get dressed. I wait for the taxi to take me to the Harbourview Hospital where I meet friends and when I arrive I am offered breakfast. I also like the exercise programs that loosen up my muscles.
