I’m here with the 100 years young, Berisford “Shep” Shepherd. There is so much to say about this wonderful man, but this quick bio will have to do. “Mr. Berisford “Shep” Shepherd is an arranger, composer, drummer, trombonist, contractor, and singer. Born in Honduras in 1917, and raised in Philadelphia, he attended Jules E. Mastbaum Area Conservatory and Vocational School where he was being groomed to play percussion in the Philadelphia Orchestra. Shep served four years in the army composing, arranging, conducting, and playing trombone. After his service, he settled in New York City where he played and contracted for Broadway shows. Shep has performed and written for seminal figures such as Benny Carter, Cy Oliver, Artie Shaw, Patti Page, Lionel Hampton, and Lena Horne among others. Because of the high-demand for his arrangements, the catchphrase “Get Shep” became common among New York musicians. He toured with various Broadway shows while based in New York. One of these shows led to San Francisco, where he eventually settled and was the house drummer at Finocchio’s for 23 years. Shep moved down to South Orange County in 2007 where he met his wife, Joy. She and Shep currently reside in San Clemente, California” Here’s a video of him singing at 99 years old. He’s got a concert this Friday singing with the Saddleback College Big Band in Mission Viejo, CA. Ask him anything!
Edit: Shep is going to rehearse with the band, but he will be back to answer more questions! If you guys have any questions about his upcoming concert, I'll be more than happy to answer them!
Edit 2: Shep is back!
Edit 3: Sorry guys, Shep has got to head home. Thanks so much for the questions! Hope to see you guys at the concert! Here’s a video of him being interviewed by Saddleback College’s jazz director, Joey Sellers, in case you wanted to know more about him.

Scammers will call older people and try to make it sound like their son/daughter is in trouble and they need some amount of money wired to a weird address. By having them call your phone number if they ever get a call like this, it will prevent them from losing money or having their identity stolen.

For starters, thank you for reading and no need to write in layman's terms.
TLDR; My dad is physically and mentally unfit to get himself on government aid and my siblings have given me the job of helping my Dad get on a plethora of government assistance plans. I need help doing so.
My father is 67 years old and has tons of mental and physical issues. He has diabetes in addition to a wide range of mental issues we think he could have. He's never been professionally evaluated, but we think he has bi-polar disorder and is a paranoid schizophrenic. He also has a tough time speaking due to his old age and not being a native speaker. I am the only one in the world that can decipher his jumbled language most of the time. He gets overwhelmed very easily and has a hard time remembering a lot of things. He currently has zero income and it's been that way for years. We think that he is being sent money from offshore relatives but no one can be certain. We are about to sell the house next month because he cannot afford to live in it any more. My parents are divorced and my dad has no legal custody of me. We live in Wisconsin. I am willing to impersonate him on the phone with people. He is totally find with it since I have to do it for him all the time.
Task 1: Get him a free phone service. He has a phone already so we just need a sim card with service.
Task 2: Get him on food stamps
Task 3: Figure out what type of health insurance he has. I've asked him for the paperwork of his insurance and he doesn't know what I'm talking about so I need a way of finding out. He definitely has something I just don’t know what.
Task 4: Get him on Social Security if he's not on it already. I don't know how I would find out since it’s the same deal with the health insurance.
Task 5: Get him professionally evaluated for mental illness. Also find out what government assistance is available to those who are disabled mentally.
Task 6: Get assistance in buying pet food. He has a cat (which is one of the few things keeping him relatively sane) and needs help caring for him.
Task 7: get him surgery for his arm. His bicep sags on one arm and he can barely use it.
Tasks 1-4 are really the essential ones. I just need to know where to start and what I need. This is pretty difficult in addition to school so that’s why I am asking for so much help
Thank you very much for those who read. Please ask any more follow-up questions you have.
By the way, this is a throwaway account because this post contains a lot of personal information. Thanks again.

Hi Reddit, I am currently touring with Cinema Twain, the feature version of my one-man stage show Citizen Twain. When I am not on the stage entertaining my fans, I am creating art or attending cons. So, let’s talk about Cinema Twain, art, being a superhero, or anything you would like to chat about – I’m your Huckleberry!
EDIT: I have to bid you farewell now, an close this AMA down, but I thank you all for taking the time to join me here and for your thoughtful questions and support. Thanks as well to the moderators here at r/movies.
