Chess improves the mind and keeps it young! But all too often, the elderly may want to play chess but cannot get a chance to do so. Either they are have restricted mobility or have no way to improve their access to what most of us take for granted.

There is a chance for some of us to fix this, in a small way. I have been contacted by a diversional therapist at a nursing home who has a man that has limited mobility that wants to play chess on a regular basis but has no-one willing to play him.

I should be able to assist him on an occasional basis, but want to put this out there to anyone else that may want to help, even on an occasional or roster basis. Get in touch (http://hamiltonchess.weebly.com/contact-us.html) with your ideas, or add a comment here.
