Welfare Visit to Jeff Thwaite
IP: 51.6.112.80


Welfare Visit, Thursday25 / 01 / 2018
Myself & Colin Dunning, went off to Wigan today to see Jeff Thwaite in his nursing home. We arrived around 11-30am to a very warm welcome
from the staff. After signing in at the office. We were taken up to the remembering room where we met Sylvia his wife & Jeff.
Anyone who has served with Jeff would recognise him immediately has not changed a lot apart from some grey hair, he is mostly the same build as when he served.
The biggest change in Jeff is that he has Alzheimer's disease. It is very difficult to get through to him but, with the help of his devoted wife Sylvia we managed to get quite a few smiles
from him we also shared a beer with him which was a welcome bonus.
Colin and myself were just wondering if we should say our farewells when Jeff said “I am Hungry” so enough said, we left Jeff to get his lunch.
What stood out in our vist to Jeff is that as long as Sylvia has a breath in her body Jeff will be loved cherished and, cared for.
