What can you do when your parents can't do anything?
I can't have a conversation with Mom because she doesn't understand anything I say, even when I say it loudly and slowly. She just doesn't comprehend.
She can kind of play solitaire but she can't lay it out and the arthritis in my hands makes it impossible for me to shuffle and lay it out - and we can't do the computer kind because that would be way to much for her to deal with!
It seems the only thing she can do besides folding towels is helping me with jigsaw puzzles. I put them together and she plays with the pieces, sorting them in some type of order. She used to put them together by color but that isn't the case any longer. Now she just thinks she is sorting them and I let her.
I can't take her for a ride because she doesn't like it if we don't have a specific place to go and if we do go, she wants to come right back home.
So we seem to be limited to her folding towels. Right now she's sitting her getting antsy because it's not time to eat yet and the movie I have on doesn't hold her attention very long.
