I am working with an upper 80's father who lives independently and his middle aged daughter. He is capable of doing almost everything himself. The daughter comes in a couple times per week to cook him meals, clean up, give him his medicine etc. However, she is getting frustrated that she is doing so much for him and he is showing almost no initiative. For example, when she arrives at 2 PM, he is often still in bed, hasn't turned on the fan or air conditioning or eaten. He does not participate in Bingo or any family activities unless daughter is able to sway/motivate him. He is not doing any exercise, which is recommended as part of his diabetes treatment. She is getting frustrated that he lacks motivation to do almost everything and he does not acknowledge feeling depressed or needing any kind of help. He doesn't take his antidepressants unless his daughter gives them to him and she can't come every day. Would it ever be appropriate to set up rewards and consequences to encourage capable seniors to take initiative? Or are there any other ideas to help someone take more initiative? Thank you in advance!
