Naturally, it depends on the person. One lady I cared for would get crabby, but I could cheer her up with tales of my (not very) wild sex life. (More stories of romances, but with juicy details included.)

Would she like to have you cook a favorite recipe? Can you look at family photos - hers or yours? My father enjoyed nature videos, which you could borrow from a library. If she is educated, there are "Great Courses" videos or audiotapes from the library. Read the newspaper or a magazine to her.

Almost everyone enjoys telling their story. Ask her about the old days. Maybe even write her autobiography! It would just be a collection of incidents, but what a treasure!

Does she enjoy cards? There are lots of different solitaires to play. Ask her what she would like to do if she were 50 years younger and had plenty of energy and money. Just discussing your fantasies should keep you busy for a few days. I hope this helps.
