I moved my mother into an IL community near me a month and a half ago. Mom has dementia and had isolated herself when living on her own. I'm thrilled that she is eating meals with other residents and goes to Bingo and music performances. The problem is when she's alone in her apartment. She doesn't know what to do with herself. She doesn't recognize that she has dementia so suggesting that she do things to actively combat the dementia won't work. I'm trying to find something that she will enjoy to keep her busy when she's on her own. You people are amazing and I've no doubt that someone out there will have some suggestions for me!
