Mom spends winter with us in Florida and suddenly becomes more dependent. In her home she does more for herself. Here she can't do her own laundry because of steps but she is getting to the point where she won't help at all. I don't expect much but I think she could set the table or stir something on the stove for me but she just sits till dinner is ready. If I go to bed early, she won't stay up either. She goes to her room. She eats breakfast in the kitchen if I'm not here but if I'm here watching the news in the morn she brings her breakfast into the living room. She stays on re liner 12 hours a day despite three doctors telling her she needs to move. I keep the house 70-71, she stays covered up on the recliner with a blanket and refuses to wear long sleeves or a sweater in the house. I am getting extremely frustrated, she might as well stay in PA on her recliner under a blanket as sit here. At least here she can get out in nice weather and take short walks and she won't. She won't do anything. Granted she can't walk long distance but a couple short walks a day would good. She wants me to provide entertainment also but what we do is not what she wants to do and she won't go to Sr Center. I am so ready for her to go home and feel guilty feeling like that but unfortunately when she leaves I have to take her and then stay with her a couple weeks.
