Mom is 92 and has no physical disability just memory issues. We are trying to find something to interest her. Any suggestions.

Show:
Can you attend an activity with her? Memory issues are scary to the person. Does the facility 'round up' the residents for activities? Does she suffer from depression? Would a mood elevator help?
Does she like puzzles?  Of course, a small number of large pieces.  Music is rarely forgotten despite a person being unable to remember anything.  Tapes can be found in thrift stores for fifty cents.  Show tunes usually work.  How about large fashion magazines.  Looking at the pictures --- asking what color the item is, commenting on the style.  all helps the memory make connections.
