Bert with family portraits in the background

Bert (age 66) recently retired from his job as a hospital porter. His wife died two years ago and he now lives alone, with good support from both his son and his daughter. He is less active now that he has stopped working but enjoys going to the football on a Saturday with his son. On a Sunday he visits his daughter for a roast dinner.

Bert does not like ready meals, so does his own cooking. He enjoys a glass of wine with his meal on week nights. He smokes 30 cigarettes per day. His younger brother has angina.
