My 90-year-old grandmother is sleeping much more and looks lethargic. What can I do for her so that she has more energy?
She is 90 years old and I am finding her asleep in her chair more and more or sleeping on the bed during times when she would usually be awake. She does not take any sleeping meds of any kind.
Walking is hard for her, but she used to be able to manage short distances. Now just a walk around the house or some stairs is very hard for her.
Today it took notice with everyone in my family. I found my mother (who is an R.N.) and sister crying together in the kitchen telling me how she does not look good anymore and how she (grandmother) tried to walk around the house but it was too much for her.
It's happening too quickly. She hasn't been like this less than a month ago.
Any insight/opinion is greatly appreciated for me to find a way to maybe put some pep back into her or anything that could help. Thank you.
