Nana wont even THINK about joining the Senior Center. They are at least five very active groups in my area, and it sounds like they are having a blast. Nana is lonlely sometimes. (I am expeccted to fill her social needs) Sometimes she gets bored. (I do my best, but I am only one person and we dont have company every day). I think she would like it. But every time I bring it up, she balks at the idea. She says she doesnt want "old people" as friends. (she is 91) I dont want to insist, or try to make her go against her will. I want it to be a positive thing. Any ideas on what I could say might persuade her to go? Has anyone else had a similar situation where your elder relative refuses to go make new friends or do anything to improve their social life, and instead, expects you to fulfill their every need? Should I just let it go, or should I keep trying to convince her?
