Making tayammum to remain in wudhu

Q: I am an elderly man. I have read about the virtues of staying in wudhu. I wish to remain in wudhu all the time. However, sometimes my wudhu breaks at work. Is it possible for me to make tayyamum just for the sake of remaining in wudhu but I would not read Quran or namaaz?

A: Yes, it is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
