Thanks for all the suggestions, including the Urn, but I hope he doesn't need one of those for some time.
I like the 'Life Alert' suggestion but there seem to be a lot of complaints about it but I might look for a similar program.
Pets are out for a number of reasons, but that is a thoughtful suggestion.
He lives here in South Carolina and his daughter lives in California so I probably know more about his daily habits than his daughter does but, as always, I will send her a note and ask. Thanks for reminding to do that.
Very good point about material things. He claims he needs nothing and is very happy considering his situation and is a constant reminder that we all have very much to be thankful for.
Please don't hesitate to make other suggestions.
BTW, have a great Thanksgiving.
