What can we do besides sit in front of the TV
quote:Originally posted by Nancy Jane:HelloI have my 85 year old mother living with us. I am the daughter. She has dementia probably a later stage - she still knows who most of us are and seems to be half in this world and have out. Very sad. Can anyone tell me activities we can do with her during the day. She use to be a very active person and now it is hard. She has a hip and back problem so that limits her. She gets upset when she has to just sit in front of the TV but I don't know what to do. I have tried to re teach her knitting but that did not work. We do have her doing "word searchs" again but how long can you do those. Any suggestions would be so appreciated. Thank you.
