Frank Henderson is an 84 year old retired real estate agent. His wife passed away about a year ago, and his son convinced him to move in with his family in San Jose so that he wouldnít be living alone. Frank likes keeping active, but an old knee injury can slow him down when it flares up.
The move to California has changed Frankís activities. He had played frequent poker games with his friends in New York, but he hasnít found a new group to play with in California. He has enjoyed the chance to teach his grandson about baseball and watch games with him. Heís also developed an interest in cooking, and is always happy to find something new to try. He joined the nature walk club as a way to make friends with people his own age.
Health concerns: An old knee injury
Technology use: He is not particularly tech savvy. He likes the idea of owning the state of the art, so heíll frequently buy the latest gadget, but most of the time he doesnít become good at actually using it. He uses his sonís computer for solitaire and online poker games. He received an iPhone as a gift last Christmas. He likes it because the buttons are bigger than the ones on his old phone, which he sometimes had difficulty using.
