Visiting GP challenges Thembalami resident to chess

Dr Kaplan’s got the moves… Thembalami Care Centre resident Brian Penney and general practitioner Dr Dave Kaplan face each other over the chess board. Brian loves chess and whenever he hears that Dr Kaplan is due to do rounds at the Rand Aid care centre in Lombard East, he sets up a chess board at one of the tables in the bright foyer. If Dr Kaplan has the time, the two enjoy a challenging session of one of the oldest games around. These spontaneous games between caregiver and resident reinforce Thembalami’s holistic approach of looking after the whole person and promoting physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing.
