Perhaps there is someone trained in Pilates near you, who would be willing to come over for personal training. With Pilates, you move what you can. Even paraplegics can do some form of Pilates.

jczirban, I am thinking maybe a nice young fellow who is a personal trainer would get your Mom's attention and she would finally do physical therapy. That worked with my Mom a decade ago, and after the end of the PT and he no longer was coming to the house, my Mom would continue to keep doing those exercises daily up until she was 98 years old. And she would say "Brian said to do this or that" :)

The Dr. would recommend physical therapy which would be provided by a home care company. This would also include nurse visits. You can speak to the nurse about nutrition.

I took my mother once to geriatric exercise program because she was deconditioned and had many falls. I would have to hide. She would look at me with those puppy dog eyes. Once the program was finished her ambulation was great. I bought her a floor peddler. She would use it from time to time. I would not force her to do anything she didn't want to do. There has to be a reason to take her to a dietician. You can't force your beliefs onto your mother. She is at the age to do what she want.

Talk to her doctor have him recommend physical therapy, she should be able to get 6 weeks covered by medicare twice a week at home or at physical therapy clinic. Its not hard to get paid phycial therapy. Now if you can get her to go to pt clinic she will get a much better longer workout and the fact of getting out of her house will be good for her mentally. If you cant take her try senior ride service. You can also hire a dietian ( you will have to pay them yourself as medicare usually will not) just do a search in your area or ask doc for recommendation. Its great that you want to help her keep moving, motivation is the biggest hurdle so find music she likes, maybe a 50's plus exercise video things that will make it fun.

There are wellness experts available through Skype, if your mother is computer savvy (or there is someone with her who is). You might want to check some out on YouTube and see who would resonate with her.
