My mom has the beginning stages of dementia. She used to love crossword puzzles, but her mind can’t even comprehend these anymore. She can’t even follow more than one direction at a time. For instance, “put your bowl in the kitchen sink and turn out the light in your room”, she would not be able to complete before asking me again what I asked her to do.
She also likes playing solitaire, but I’ve never actually watched her play, so I’m not sure if she does this right or not.
I want her to focus more on tasks and thinking. Are there any games or tasks available that would help her do this?
Currently, she lives with me and her focus is disjointed during the day. Even when watching TV, I’m sure she doesn’t understand half of what she’s watching. I will ask her questions about various things, and she comes up with off the wall answers.
Anyone else have experience with this?
