When did you last laugh heartily and what about?
Katrin Sickert: I like to laugh and I do it often (and apparently very loud, as I was told). Just now at breakfast, I laughed with U. about flat jokes and slapstick comedy. U. also has multiple sclerosis. We are both very glad that we have each other, here among all the elderly in the residential and nursing home.
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Katrin Sickert: I'd like to go on vacation, to the sea. For four years now I am very dependent on the help of others, because I sit in the wheelchair and I’m also otherwise not very resilient. With company, I can walk a short distance with a rollator. I'd like to practice this every day, not only one or two times a week. So far, I did not dare to travel alone, because for me it is all too complicated to organize everything.
Which person has influenced you most?
