My mom was recently discharged from a rehab facility. During that time, she feigned being unable to get out of bed but was able to when the social worker called her on it. She acted like she couldn't walk, but, again, was able to. She pretended she 'wasn't hungry" with us, worrying us about her eating, but the nurses said she was eating well. We would even peak in the door and see her eating fine but, when we came into the room, she would push the tray away refusing to eat.
Now, she is home and is ambulatory. But, she refuses to do anything. She moves from her bed to a chair where she sits all day. She won't make her meals - expects us to come over three times a day and do it. Acts like she
can't take her meds - again, we have to come over and do it. She won't go outside or do anything on her own. I am fed up and am looking into AL placement. It would be different if she would just try. Any advice?
