    I was wondering if I could use this image in a magazine article about our charity. We run a project to befriend older people who are isolated, housebound and mostly lonely.

    Many thanks.

    Well, my Grandma was not isolated, not really homebound (debatable) and not lonely. My cousin lived in the same house with her family and my uncle passed by every day. My Grandma simply loved the view out of her kitchen window where she saw a cherry tree, a magnolia and a couple of kilometers of meadows behind the garden.

    Anyway, to help your charity, feel free to use this photo.

    Sure! In fact she received "meals on wheels"!
  • makitmama 4y

    this is a great pic- can I use it in a powerpoint about nursing homes? I will attribute it, of course. I think the greatest part of it is what the viewer projects onto the image- I assumed at first she was lonely- but reading your comments realize how wrong I was. So I projected lol

    This really depicts a vulnerable adult lost in deep thought. It would be a great thing if elders could have more piece of mind and time to think like this. If this is something an elder needs you can check out Causes of Neglect in Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly at
