She needs a friend but won't warm-up to me.
after seeing the devestating results of the disabled and/or elderly being forgotten and ignored by family members, i decided to try to make a difference in some lives around town. one lady at 81 has 3 estranged daughters [if you can believe that!] and im told is lonely and sad. i've seen her 4 times now and can't seem to befriend her the way i'd like. she's very nice i'm sure, but won't talk and often just wants to nap. she's on oxygen and a wheelchair. any ideas in how to pep her up and get her interested in what i bring and the walks outside we take? sometimes i wish i could just bring her home and treat her like a queen. but i can't. maybe she needs something more. meds? or what?
