Why on earth would she refuse the transport chair if it will get her out?

Our mom wanted entertainment, but would not go to the senior center or use the senior van. We moved her to assisted living for a one month trial. She loved the company. By the way she is deaf in rt ear, blind in left eye and uses a walker. Socialization is key to their survival.

Home healthcare agencies offer companionship. I think you'd have to commit to a minimum of 2 hours but you can hire someone to come over and just sit and talk with your mom. Plus, this would give you a brief respite as well.
