Inactive alzheimers parent who always feels sick

Started by

My mom(76) is mid-stage alzheimers and is living with my dad in their home. We are looking at ways to get her interaction but she feels she is terribly sick with the flu, aches, and headache nearly every day. This same situation happened last winter on a daily basis. How do you get someone to snap out of this. She doesn't want to go out and many planned activities with others are cancelled because she does not feel well. My dad is feeling trapped.
We have approached adult day care activities with her but she is upset at the mention of it.
Anyone with ideas?
