I recently took in my mom who has the beginning of dementia and a bad knee which means she can only walk with a walker for a short period and then gets very weak and tired. She also broke 2 fingers during a recent fall and babys that hand to avoid discomfort. She has therapist come in twice a week and she does everything they say but as soon as they leave, she is done. She can dress herself but always says she can't do it and wants help. I have stopped helping her because I want her to keep up her strength. But she doesn't want to get up in the morning and shortly after she gets up she wants to take a nap. She always wants to be left alone so she can shut her eyes. When I talk to her about it, she just says she is a lazy old lady. I fear some day she won't be able to stand on her own and I won't be able to take care of her anymore. I work 50 - 60 hours per week and have in home caregivers during the day. She also gives them a hard time about her naps and exercise. I almost feel like I am giving up on her at times and I hate that feeling but I just need to see a little effort or motivation on her part to give me hope. Any suggestions on how to motivate her so she will remember the next day?
