This guilt is heavy. My mom recently moved into a nursing home. The ONLY thing she says she enjoys is visits from family. Which leaves a lot of empty time for her. When I offer books, puzzles, coloring etc she always says no, she doesn't enjoy that stuff. Then she'll say, "You know what I do enjoy? When you take me out and we go do stuff." ... Unfortunately, I cannot do that everyday so she just sits around with no purpose. Does anyone have any idea on how to help her? This makes me feel horrible and so drained. I give all I can to her but it isn't enough. When I visit for 2 hours, she asks me to stay longer. If I take her out she wants me to come back and stay longer even if we've been together all day. It is like a choke hold and it breaks my heart, makes me cry, makes me exhausted, and makes me feel so guilty all at the same time. I wish I could help her find a reason to enjoy each day outside of family visits... something to give her purpose. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
