Summary

Who is going to grab a terrace with me or play a game in the house when the weather is bad?

Detailed description

Warm woman (80 yrs) would like to go out, but two years ago she had a cerebral infarction, which makes walking difficult now. Her network has 'died' due to her disability and age and she is therefore looking for a buddy to do something fun with once a week. She would like to go for a walk with a buddy (with the wheelchair), go to a terrace or go shopping and in bad weather she would like to play a game or drink coffee with a good conversation.

Are you going out with her?
