Aloys Giesen, family doctor from Dodewaard doing a home visit at Mr. Jan and Mrs. Janna´s house. Patients who are extremly fragile and vulnerable because of chronicle illness, in terminal state or with acute illnesses are visited at home. Mrs. Janna (90) suffers from heart failure but is mentally fit, Mr. Jan (almost 95) suffers from dementia. They have been together for 70 years. Mr. Jan´s dementia and her own health problems make it more and more impossible for Mrs. Janna to look after them both. They still live on their own. Mr. Giesen has been working in Dodewaard for 38 years. Jan and Janna know him since the start. He says people in this region are not always easy to approach but once they opened up they won´t let you go.
