My mother, who recently suffered from a stroke, does not want to leave the house
Is it normal for a 90 yr old stroke victim not to want to go anywhere? I'm trying to get my mom to go to the senior center, just walk her there in the wheelchair when I pick up her daily lunch but she doesn't want to go anywhere or do anything. She has a hearty appetite, but she just wants to stay in the house.
I tried to tell her about the adult day care idea and she says she doesn't want to go. Could this be depression and should I insist that she start getting out? Her Doctor has already told her that when you don't use it, you lose it.
