Hi, I could really use some advice. My mother is severely depressed. Physically she's suffering from the effects of immunotherapy (it cured the cancer but caused other issues) and a deepening depression. She's on TPN for nutrition because she's not thriving/eating. She won't do daily tasks that could help improve her health (control her allergies, get up to use the toilet, bathe, brush her teeth, etc.). Getting her out of bed for anything is a negotiation. "Come back in five minutes" or "leave me alone," are typical responses, and that's with consistent tries over several hours. This is hard emotionally, and I don't have siblings to help share the care/concern, so I could really use any tips people here have found useful in motivating severely depressed loved ones to do a couple things throughout the day.
